In 2006 the Fondazione Spinola Banna per l'Arte began a small-scale but important publishing activity. The motivation was twofold: firstly to document its own activities in the world of visual arts and contemporary music; and secondly to patronise the publication of critical essays on contemporary music and monographs on contemporary art by figures who have actively taken part in the various projects of the Foundation either as visiting professors, or also as students. The visual art editions will be published in conjunction with other Italian and foreign institutions whose goal is that of promoting young artists.
The Quaderni di Banna (Banna Notebooks), published as a box set at the end of each cycle of activity for the year, document the artistic and musical work of the Foundation. As well as films of the discussions and debates held during the workshops the visual art volumes contain work produced during each session and detailed documentation of the work of the teachers and the participants on each course. Material related to the Music Project includes the libretto, a presentation of all the workshop's participants and the commissioned piece, and a recording of the final concert.

Scritti per Mario Bortolotto
Edited by Jacopo Pellegrini and Guido Zaccagnini
Torino, EDT 2007
Composers very often need a few fellow travellers who understand and support them, who are their defenders and, in some way, their spokesperson. Whether they need solace or encouragement, or careful consideration, they are sure to find this support at their side, near enough but at the meantime no so close as to fall into a mirror-effect which is more noxious than useful. This is what Mario Bortolotto has been and still is: we can warmly thank...
