Ticino is in a small area in southern Switzerland on the border with Italy. The Ticino region was a part of Italy until a few centuries ago. The Mandolin arrived in Ticino through immigrants and their music, and took important cultural roots. The style in Ticino is a link to the old Italian folk music tradition, which has been largely lost in Italy and throughout other parts of the world. This book is a collection of some of the most famous pieces from this vast repertoire. The collection includes lots of popular folk songs, virtuosic pieces by original Mandolin composers, as well an Aonzo composition. The book is presented in English and Italian; the music in standard notation and Mandolin tab.
