This article examines the impact of the early dissemination of Russian Opera in the cultural life and the musical thought of Italy between the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. At the same time, it deals with the theory that Italy embraced Russian Opera in order to solve his own problems in building a national identity and it reflects the wider historiographical debates over the concept of cultural transfer. In this regards, the Author shows that contemporary critics and composers (like Giannotto Bastianelli and Alfredo Casella) understood Musorgsky’s »barbaric genius« as ideal reference point for a return to the supposedly popular origin of Italian melody.
