Music is music, and life without it is like a body without a soul. Cicero’s words. Music is an art form that can truly unite people from distant cultures. When listening to your favorite music, the brain releases dopamine, the “pleasure hormone” associated with eating, drinking and sexuality. The science that studies the history of music is musicology, and the main theories on its origins are fundamentally two, based on one rhythm and the other on the melody. Its birth and its evolution were dictated by a necessity but also by spontaneity: grown up like the life of a climbing plant on the genealogical tree of man. Something that hides, for many, even today something magical, mysterious and even spiritual, not just notes and timpani.
