San Marino is a small sovereign state located within the territory of Italy. It has a musical heritage which includes the 17th-century composer Francesco Maria Marini di Pesaro and the 20th-century composer Cesare Franchini Tassini (1925–2010).

Since 1894, a wordless composition by Federico Consolo has been the national anthem of San Marino. The piece is based on a 10th-century choral composition.[1] The previous anthem was by Aur. Muccioli and U. Balsimelli, and is similar to the Italian national anthem.[2]

The modern military forces of San Marino parade through the streets in full uniform several times a day, accompanied by the sounds of a military brass band.[3]

There is a small metal scene with Necrofilia[4] and Nothing Inside Eyes[5] the latter being formed from another band called Alchimia 2012.[6]
