About us

Centotrecento was born in 2017 from a long fellowship between musicians who had already collaborated in the Sine Nomine and Acantus groups. Recently, fascinated by some insights on the notation of the Ars Nova, have undertaken this new project on Italian music of the ‘300.

Centotrecento is a narrow street in the center of Bologna, the ancient name, “via delle Cento Trexende”, recalls the many dams and confluences of water, today underground but still visible in some streets, which fed the fountains, silk mills and canals of the medieval city.
