The project

The project examines a collection of more than 4300 perforated rolls for the semi-automatic performance by piano players. These are particularly rare sound supports that need conservative care and enhancement.
The conservation of the of rolls collection includes:

  • the accurate control of the rolls and their precise cataloguing;
  • scanning of the rolls, for preservative purposes of intrinsically fragile paper supports.

The valuation of the collection is carried out with:

  • the sound conversion of the rolls, by processing their scans from the graphic format to the sound format (midi file) using a special software;
  • the analog performance – and the relative recording – of selected rolls, in particular those with performances made by important pianists of the early twentieth century, untraceable on other contemporary media (the first records);
  • the preparation of a website to host and disseminate the results of cataloguing, scanning and sound;
  • the possible realization of one or more CDs with the analog execution of a selected group of rolls;
  • the reconstruction of the entire catalogue of FIRST (Fabbrica Italiana Rulli Sonori Traforati), the most important Italian company producing rolls, and a parallel survey of other minor Italian brands, on which literature is completely lacking.
