About this Item

Quarto. (30)ff. scrapbook belonging to a member of the Spilimbergo Choral School, and containing eight hand-tinted photographs, a roster of members, mimeographed sheets with lyrics to songs and a guide to a folk dance, and hand-written sheet music. One photograph shows the entire group in folkloric attire. The other photographs show couples dancing; most demonstrate specific steps to the furlana, a courtship folk dance. The choral roster in the front of the book lists the name of each member, his or her choral part and occupation. The Spilimbergo Scuola Corale was part of the Opera Nazionale Dopolavoro (OND), which was formed by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in cooperation with fascist trade unions in 1925. The OND provided recreational and cultural activities for industrial workers and was intended to compete with Socialist cultural organizations. The OND's activities were popular among workers, but it was never a successful tool for Fascist indoctrination; as such, the songs in this scrapbook appear to be more sentimental and folkloric than propagandistic. In slate blue paper wrappers, with the title calligraphed in black ink to front cover. The mimeographed pages bear the official stamp of the OND and the choral school. Repair to spine and some edgewear, else about fine. Bookseller Inventory # 23509
