While it is one of the smallest regions of Italy, the Music of Molise is active.

Musical venues and activities

The Teatro Savoia was built and opened in 1926 in Campobasso and then reopened in 2002. The city has a Friends of Music Association and, surprisingly, a Regional Symphony Orchestra (something that even some larger Italian regions do not have). The city is also the home of the Lorenzo Perosi music conservatory.

The zampogna, a folk bagpipe.

Isernia is known for its folk traditions and open-air festivals. The city is site of the university of Molise as well as, in Scapoli, the Museum of the Zampogna, the folk bagpipes, with its permanent exhibit of local traditional as well as foreign instruments.
