Some highlights from the Florence music history:
- the trecento-music of Landini and his contemporaries as collected in the MS Squarcialupi.
- the development of theatrical music and monody, culminating in the first operas under the auspices of the Camerata group around 1600.
- the Teatro della Pergola, 1657, reopened 1718 with Scanderbeg by Vivaldi.
From 1765 under the rule of Habsburg archdukes; more interest in Viennese symphonic and chamber music than elsewhere in Italy. From 1865 until '71 the capital of united Italy.
