A museum dedicated to the accordion
The town of Castelfidardo officially opened the International Accordion Museum on 9 May 1981.
Castelfidardo is known all over the world for the production of this instrument, thanks to the ingenuity of Paolo Soprani who created the first Italian accordion company in 1863.
Masterpiece of mechanics
The accordion (from 19th-century German Akkordeon, from Akkord—”musical chord, concord of sounds”- N.B.: the Italian “fisarmonica” comes from the German physharmonika, composed of the Greek words phŷsa – bellows and harmonikós – harmonic) is an aerophone instrument with free metal reeds, powered by a central bellows.
