Welcome to our new look!

It’s been almost 20 years since Italian Sinfonia debuted online in June 1996 (anyone remember Geocities?) – and it’s probably been about that long since we’ve updated our design. We’ve moved the site to a WordPress format and hope to take advantage of its many features, as well as focusing on keeping our most popular sections current.

Please email any comments or suggestions. A presto!
