About the project

The project Connecting Medieval Music is a platform for the study of contrafacta of Medieval Romance lyric with the help of a chronological and geographical perspective.

The Connecting Medieval Music platform uses MedMus – DH-DW extension for medieval music, literature, and cultural heritage, created by Stefano Milonia.

DH-DW (Digital Humanities-Data Workbench) is a Drupal based software created by Steve Ranford and ComputerMinds, firstly created for the project, directed by professor Micheal Scott.

MedMus has been adopted by the project Prosopographical Atlas of Romance Literature, with which we have had a data sharing agreement.


Principal investigator: Stefano Milonia (University of Warwick)

Collaborators: Samuele Maria Visalli (Università di Roma Sapienza), Ermes Faillace (Università di Roma Sapienza), Giulia Boitani (University of Cambridge).



MedMus data model implements an extended version of the CIDOC-CRM especially crafted for medieval  literary and musical works.
