|Art Director: Leonardo D'Amico|
This Festival was started in order to provide the public with some further documentation and information of high quality in a branch of documentary cinema hardly to see even during filmfestivals or even specialized cinematographic circuits. The Festival reached in 1999 its XVII° edition and represents an occasion to see, besides documentary films of specific ethnomusicological character, other films in which the traditional music, even if not the leading part, plays an important role. The organization of this Festival involves several european institutions like the Musée de l'Homme, the Maison des Cultures du Monde and the CNRS-Audiovisuel in Paris, the Institute for Scientific Film (I.W.F.) in Germany and the Italian Society for Ethnomusicology in Italy.
