Hello everyone.

This is a project that, at least in my ideas, was born a long time ago.
But as usual, life takes you on different paths in spite of you, and confronts you with unexpected situations.
The intention of making this compilation has always been there, dormant, but alive, and in the last couple of months it has finally been possible to make it happen.

A huge thanks to all the members of this fantastic community for their shares in these last years, and a special mention plus a very special thanks for Rocco.
As well as all his fantastic shares, he gave me a huge hand in locating all female composers and all the possible tracks I could have had in lossless format.
Obviously, there would be many that I would have liked to have included, but unfortunately a lossless rip of many beauties hasn't surfaced yet.
Despite that, I have managed to collect over 1200 tracks!!

After a very very hard job in choosing "which ones", I ended up keeping 165. I hope you'll not find it too distractive and dispersive.
This is not a genre collection, but a composer collection: it's all about women, Italian women composers. I wanted to pay homage to as many of them as possible, depending on the available resources.
For this reason you'll find a wide range of music genres. As the library music itself is, a total range of music genres, all designed for the same reason: to support, comment and match images and feelings.

165 tracks, 5 volumes, all flac, all tagged (no years, sorry, cause too many are unknown), with high resolution front/back covers.

It's been exciting for me to develop this project.
I hope you will enjoy it.

Wonderful hommage to Italian female artists in library music.

This is great gift, beautifully wrapped, that you offer to all members here.

Speechless, what a glorious work Greta, such an interesting theme!

EDIT: Just finished downloading and started listening: came back to say that this really is monumental: I know it's pretty difficult but it should be published, at least digitally!

Wish I'd noticed this thread earlier. Just a quick glance at the tracklist tells me this will be a splendid experience, my hat's off to you! Will return to share some thoughts.

     I just heard about this project from your link on the Squirrel thread!

     Fantastic compilations, Greta! The scope is impressive and the artwork is elegant. Nice job.

     I listened to the first one at work today. The Glohaven track was the standout for me. Looking forward to discovering more great artists. Thank you very much for these!

     Have you posted your "Italia 70 - Librerie Musicali" and "Absolute Flute" comps on this version of the board? If not, you should.

Thank you A8.
The other compilations of mine were posted on previous versions of the board.
Yeah, I will probably re-post them here, assuming there's some interest about.
