A little ‘history: The experience of Middle Schools Address Musicale was founded almost 30 years ago as an experiment; were very few schools to implement and among these, in Rome, there was a middle school Foscolo. It was 1979; From that moment the spread of SMIM has become increasingly widespread and experimental courses passed to sort in 1999 (Law 124 of 03/05/99 and 06/08/99 the DM 201).
