The members of Sollazzo have benefitted from studies in institutions renowned for their specialization in early music such as the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, the ESMUC in Barcelona, and the CNSM in Paris and Lyon. This exposure to a wealth of ideas and influences plus a curriculum which presented diverse ways of approaching medieval repertoire guided Sollazzo to their future musical projects.
In 2014 Sollazzo entered the Eeemerging programme, supported by Creative Europe, which presented the opportunity to attend several artistic residencies throughout Europe. In 2015 the ensemble won the York Early Music International Young Artists Prize, while being also awarded the Friends of York Early Music Festival Prize by the public, and the Cambridge Early Music Prize.
Apart from its concert activity, the ensemble has collaborated with the Italian Fondazione Ezio Franceschini (Florence) and Fondazione Giorgio Cini (Venice) in the context of international seminars and symposiums bringing together musicologists, philologists, and specialists on Italian medieval music. In 2017 Sollazzo collaborated with the Alamire Foundation on the presentation of a newly discovered source, the Leuven Chansonnier, and premiered its heretofore unknown repertory in New York.
