Among the common musical  instruments, the organ is the  only one to have a particular  status,  deriving from its own  handmade nature: it is an  immovable instrument. It is  true that there are also smaller  models, the positivi and the  portativi, but we don’t think  about them when we talk  about organ and, without  diminishing their importance,  these smaller models haven’t  had a central role in the long  history of the instrument and  of its literature. For this reason, if for a string instrument,  for example, we refer to some  of its owners (“The Stradivari  Contessa of Polignac”,  “The Guarnieri ex- Vieux-temps”), for an organ we refer  to the place – church, auditorium or city - that hosts it  (“The Cavaillé-Coll in  Daint-Ouen”, “The Gabler in  Weingarten”)

This harmony between place  and instrument is not only  something emotional, but it  has an higher value: organ  building traditions, the features of the single instruments,  the availability of some organ  stops deeply influence deeply  the way of thinking the writing  of the musician who, with  that instrument, trains himself  and works. What would be possible with an eighteenth  century German instrument, won’t be always possible with  a coeval French organ, and so  on, in every point of view.
The  organ of Santa Maria delle Assi  Church in Modena adds to  these geographical peculiar-ity the interest of a particular  historical stratification of  sound material: if the definitive  order is the one by Alessio  Verati (1859) who came from  Bologna, it is the rearrangement of an instrument built  by Agostino Traeri (Modena,  1763) that embodies valuable materials by Paolo Cipri from  Ferrara (from the original 1584  organ, most of the pipes of Ripieno (Principal chorus) and  Flauto in VIII are preserved:  they make this instrument  suitable for the performance of  repertoire of the padan area)
In what we had said up to this point, it is implicitly explained the meaning of a listening trip  which is organised not in a chronological order but with a  geographical structure: it will  begin in Ferrara and, through Ravenna, it will return on  the Via Emilia to go up again from Forlì until Piacenza. Its  conclusion will be also, it is at  least allowed to hope that, a  new beginning
