Music has long been a signifier of Italian identity, and its bearing on both popular and scholarly views of Italian nation-building during the long nineteenth century has only recently been seriously contested.

This in turn invites critical attention on the nineteenth-century musical construction of Italian-ness from novel viewpoints, including the global and transnational.
