This book is historically important for the electroacoustic music scene in Italy. It is at the same time a book and the catalogue of the homonym exhibition organized in 1986 by the Venice Biennale (the expo aimed to show and reconstruct various electroacoustic experiences since 1900 in the world).
One part of the book contains a selection of essays (some already published that have been translated into Italian), thought by the editor to be fundamental as reference points on the historical, technological and sociological electroacoustic music scene.
The second part shows various profiles of centres and electroacoustic instruments, a bibliography and a discography.
