About Italian Jewish Music
A recent inquiry on the Jewish-music mailing list led to this wonderful summary of Italian Jewish Music by Francesco Spagnolo. I don't think that there is online information about Italian Jewish music (certainly not in English), anywhere else, so I am especially pleased to have Francesco's permission to make this available on the KlezmerShack.
And, for the record, there's more to it than Rossi, and Italians didn't do klezmer. They had their own musical traditions, more, er, Italian!
