"Naples prevailed in fact, in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century, as one of the greatest operatic centers in Europe, contending with ups and downs in Venice a record that Venice had always had in Italy. Rome, which for much of the seventeenth century was the second place of Italian opera, he found himself affected, since the last two decades of the seventeenth century, a papal policy that penalized the Opera and, more generally, any form of entertainment . Rome lost so many musicians of value (such as Alessandro Scarlatti) and saw gradually relegated to an increasingly marginal role in the life of Italian opera and the European Union. Other centers in Italy, particularly active in this field were Florence, Bologna, Parma, Milan and the star would begin to shine only from about half of the eighteenth century."
I assume the above is your translation. Some of it doesn't make sense: "contending with ups and downs in Venice a record that Venice had always had in Italy." It fails to rank Naples, Venice, and Rome.
If this source did rank the schools, we could describe the difference of opinion between Schluter and Clercx. Hyacinth (talk) 15:22, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
But The Neapolitan School has been considered in between the Roman School and the Venetian School in importance. is an absolutism that, if not universally recognized, on wikipedia can not be written. This is my opinion. --IlSistemone (talk) 15:53, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
It appears you are confusing the statement with "The Neapolitan School is in between the Roman School and the Venetian School in importance." Hyacinth (talk) 03:08, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Using a source from 1865 for this type of material is not good practice in general and especially not within musicology. It predates a lot of important research on opera from the period. The period in question has also been highly criticized for it's elitist and unscientific approach to and teachings of what was to be considered "good" music. 11:11, 17 January 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk)
