Jazz Studies Online: You're not from New York originally. What lured you here? What features did the city offer then that others did not? Given that you still make a point of visiting here regularly, have your motivations for coming here changed at all?
Sara Villa, an Italian native whose work deals with jazz and literature, has provided JSO with this reference guide of writings and sources on jazz written Italian. The balance of these materials are on jazz in and of Italy. This bibliography was officially revised and approved by Francesco Martinelli, Head of the Centro Nazionale Studi Sul Jazz Arrigo Polillo in Siena, Italy, where most of these materials may be found.
