THE MUSICAL WORKS FUND

& TOMORROW'S ARTISTIC HERITAGE

Every six months, the data in the Fund’s digital library and the catalogues is harvested by the National Library of France (BnF).
This honours the commitment made by the Fund at its inauguration at the Palazzo Farnese on 5 July 2012 in Rome, following which we received the patronage of the French Ministry of Culture:

(...) The digitisation of cultural heritage is one of the priorities of the Ministry of Culture and Communication. Your project contributes to this aim by promoting the physical and digital preservation of musical works from across the world. Moreover, the partnerships that you are establishing with libraries reflect my ministry’s desire to strengthen international cultural exchanges. (...)
