Omar Zoboli got some of long presumed lost scores from his former teacher Heinz Holliger. He found more scores by researching the libraries of Italian Conservatories. 1985 he met two of Pasculli’s daughters, Laura and Concettina, in Palermo. On that occasion, the daughters bestowed further manuscripts as well as their father’s musical instruments on Zoboli, in appreciation of his remarkable dedication to Pasculli’s work.
