The organ of the Malpaga church is a small instrument corresponding to the so-called "Cecilian" style, as it was defined - with a certain arrogance dictated by an ideological approach that lasted from the 60s to the 90s of the twentieth century that a priori denied its value - the tendency of the Italian organ-building to emancipate itself from the nineteenth-century taste dominated by the imitation of the opera.

A trend that followed the realization, by the most skilled musicians of the last quarter of the nineteenth century, of the enormous distance between nineteenth-century Italian organ music - precisely flattened on an opera imitation often of a very low level and which did not even arise the problem of the possibility of a more advanced and mature technique - and the oldest Italian one but above all the Central European one, from Bach and his predecessors to French Romanticism up to German Expressionism.
