Award-winning Italian record label Tactus Records was founded in March 1986 by Bologna businessman Serafino Rossi, more for the passion of the music than for business reasons. The label initially focussed on Italian Renaissance and Baroque music, but has expanded into the following centuries, up to and including contemporary music. Its catalog, distributed internationally, continues to be enriched with many works adding to the mosaic of Italian musical culture.
