Fondazione Giorgio Cini onlus, Archivio Nino Rota

Over the years the Foundation has built up substantial collections of documents from various fi elds: the visual arts, early and contemporary music, ethnomusicology, drama, librettos, literature, and the history of
the Venetian State.
Thanks to its considerable reputation, the Foundation has been presented with the private collections of documents, archives and libraries of leading figures in international culture, in the form of bequests and donations.
After being carefully re-ordered and catalogued, this material is now part of the heritage offered to scholars and has gradually been further expanded through acquisitions and the research activities of the Foundation’s various Institutes and Research Centers.
