While the term "Italianità" is originated in the 19th century, it can also be applied to phenomena of Italian music in Europe during the baroque period. When the genres of opera and cantata began to be established in Italy, a remarkable export to other European countries started, especially to France and Germany. Some examples will be shown (L. Rossi, L. N. Clérambault, J. Ph. Rameau, G. Ph. Telemann) in order to discuss the application of subjects, forms and musical styles, and furthermore the development and redefinition. The Orpheus myth and its conversions in libretto and musical adaption will be spotlighted in particular.
