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.

• BOCCHERINI STUDIES
Editorial Committee: Roberto Illiano, Fulvia Morabito, Luca Sala, Massimiliano Sala
In addition to the dearth of scholarly editions of Boccherini's music, there is a correspondingly large gap in the music-historical and musicological studies dedicated to the composer. Having access to a reliable score – for study and/or performance – is only one aspect of the process of forming an adequate assessment of the composer. Equally essential, if we wish to reach a full understanding of the composer and his period, is also to consider what has been lost. As a result, the Centro Studi Opera omnia Luigi Boccherini-Onlus has decided to facilitate an ongoing account of the international debate on the subject. The «Boccherini Studies» will carefully monitor the results of scholars' research and will also provide updates on the state of the sources.
• AD PARNASSUM STUDIES
Editorial Committee: Roberto De Caro, Roberto Illiano, Fulvia Morabito, Claudio Nuzzo, Michla Niccolai, Luca Sala, Massimiliano Sala
This series of Studies is devoted to individual composers who have made a significant impact in the field of instrumental music. In this way they remain securely within the journal's area of interest. The aim is to avoid imposing strict limits on the specific themes being treated, given that the entire output of the composers concerned may be taken into account and not just the instrumental music.
• AD PARNASSUM. A JOURNAL OF EIGHTEENTH- AND NINETEENTH-CENTURY INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC
Editor-in-Chief: Roberto De Caro
Editors: Lorenzo Frassà - Roberto Illiano - Fulvia Morabito - Michela Niccolai - Claudio Nuzzo - Luca Sala - Massimiliano Sala
Ad Parnassum, a twice-yearly musicological journal, deals exclusively with instrumental music of the 18th and 19th centuries. Launched in 2003, the journal is a prestigious Italian achievement, and a reference point in the international music scene.
