A kind of trait d’union between the Renaissance and the Baroque, it is one of the very few transverse flutes known at the present time (there are just three). Made in Europe in the 17th century, it bears witness to an original system developed in the second half of the 17th century.It and then set aside due to the rise throughout Europe of the conical instrument of French origin. The original, today restored, is preserved in the Treasure Museum of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi. For me, it is the instrument of experimentation, of novelty, of unknown territory. It can be heard in the version of the Sonata sesta “Rugiero”
