In the newly built Italian violins made by the talents in our workshop, our luthiers document their permanent involvement with the great violin making history of Cremona. Upon timely request, they open the doors of our workshop to interested musicians for an audition and personal consultation.
An inspiring place in Cremona
Our luthiers work in a place deeply rooted in the city's history: the massive brick walls of the studio in Piazza San Michele No. 7 enclose the space that was once the chapel of the Hospital of St. John, founded in 1151 - directly opposite the Basilica of San Michele, built on the site of an ancient Lombard church, which was Cremona's cathedral in the 12th century. From here it is less than a five-minute walk to the place where no less than Claudio Monteverdi was born in 1567.
