“The Centro Studi Opera omnia Luigi Boccherini (Onlus) of Lucca was established in November 2005 to carry out the editorial work relating to the complete works of the lucchese composer Luigi Boccherini. The choice of Lucca as a location is not by chance: Luigi Boccherini was born in Lucca, so it is the natural site on which to launch the Italian National Edition of Luigi Boccherini's Complete Works. The Centro Studi also hosts the work of the Italian National Edition of the Opera omnia of Pietro Antonio Locatelli and the musicological series Speculum Musicae, Studies on Italian Music History and Monumenta Musica Europea. Furthermore, the staff of the Centro Studi carry out the scientific and editorial work of numerous international musicological publications, including Boccherini Studies, offering the definitive record of international scholarly debate on the composer, and, together with other musicologists, the journal Ad Parnassum. A Journal of Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Instrumental Music, and the series Ad Parnassum Studies. The Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini organizes International Conferences and Symposia on various musicological topics and has founded the Boccherini Festival. The Centro Studi Opera omnia Luigi Boccherini-Onlus is a member of the Fondazione Promo P.A. di Lucca (www.promopa.it)”
