instruments
The instruments presented in this exhibition form the core collection of masterpieces that belong to the past three centuries. The classical era of Italian violin making has given us the most celebrated, admired, preserved, and therefore imitated, production in the history of manufacturing musical instruments. Although it is always a pleasure to see and compare the most renowned luthiers, it is equally significant and no less fascinating to also document and preserve the production of these masters’ students.
The collection housed in this museum covers a time span of 300 years of Italian violin making and includes splendid examples of the different regional schools.
