Yes, this is an intriguiging find! I have been writing the company for a few months now, but can get no response.  I'll ask my Italian correspondent to see if he can help. The author also recorded a Taraffo CD in 2004 (which Ben just discrovered), but the music - transcribed from the original 78s, may be arranged for 6-string only.

Meanwhile, zero word on the new Taraffo double-CD, or use of the "secret video." The project seems to have stalled.

Well, I finally received the answer from my Italian friend Gino.
Fabrizio Giudice transcribed the original Taraffo arrangements from the 78s onto a six-string guitar. This is what he plays on his CD (out-of-print, but he will be repressing) - the 3 sub-bass harp guitar on the cover is just a teaser.  Unfortunately, this is the version that appears in the Sinfonica Taraffo Folio.
We were so close!
