Description

Mirella Vita’s career was rich, fascinating and adventurous. In this book we discover the woman behind the harpist.
She was more than a musician, she was a woman engaged with her time, and her life was full of purpose.
In her path to perfection, she was an indefatigable seeker.

“It is thanks to the meticulous work of Mirella, who truly devoted her life to researching and reinstating totally unknown harp music, that all of us harpists can be proud of our repertoire.” (Anna Loro)
