Can music be a gateway to truth?

And how can this happen? This

book explores the fascinating

narrative of the relationship

between music and faith, in

dialogue with major figures of the

Italian culture. Dante’s itinerary to

God in the Divina Commedia can

be described as a musical path; the

popularity of Verdi’s Va’, pensiero

dovetails with Italy’s recent history

and expresses the feelings and

the influence of Petrarch on European poetry and music is

felt in J. S. Bach’s sacred output, which also comprises his

own transcription of a Marian devotional work by Pergolesi.

Each of the four chapters of this book focuses on one of

these four leading characters of Italian history (Dante,

Petrarch, Pergolesi and Verdi), whose artistry shaped our

culture. They also created new ways to express the splendour

of truth, which transforms aesthetic enjoyment into the

contemplation of the ultimate Good, the radiant beauty of


Through Music to Truth is published by Effatà

142) by Franz Schubert, together

Pictures at an Exhibition) and byi
