WORKED OVER AND OPTIMIZED: Mario Gadda, Italian violin after Stefano Scarampella

This Italian violin by Mario Gadda, a bench copy of Stefano Scarampella, provided with label and stamped „SS “, is more than the bare recourse to an important name; it is expression of a continuous tradition. The legendary Stefano Scarampella belongs to the direct artistic ancestors of Mario Gadda whose father and teacher Gaetano was Stefano Scarampellas only student and is considered as its legitimate follower. Thus the resemblance to Stefano Scarampellas works became also a constitutive element in the style of Mario Gadda. The special character of this violin is expressed by the large and very distinctive scroll cut in characteristic form. With its large soloist sound, flowing, rich in overtones, typically Italian, this instrument shows playing qualities worthy of its ancestors.
