Attraction and Repulsion

The influence of Villanelle Napolitane

Delle Donne Consort presents a polyphonic love story with a toxic twist. Through the program the different facets of love themes from the 16th century during the Italian Renaissance are shown through Neapolitan Villanelles and their unique influence throughout the Western music.


Cypriaan de Rore and the Flemish polyphonists

As one of the most influential composers in the history of madrigal, Cypriaan de Rore through emotionality, vividness, extravagant rhetorical gestures, and unusual chromatism expresses the richness of the Renaissance’s human feelings.


The Era of Josquin des Prez

Josquin des Prez was considered the greatest composer of his age, as a central figure of the Franco-Flemish school, his mastery of technique and expressions were truly inspirational and admired.



The Art of Imitation

The theory of imitation and expression is one of the most essential elements in the history of Western music. Imitation was regarded as a general principle of art, and art itself as an imitation of life.



Live Electronics


Collaborations with artists from different disciplines.



The performance Inquietudine - Restlessness describes the search for identity and one's own voice.
