SALE: Raffaello Bozzi, Milano, 1939: Italian violin (certificate Cesare Magrini)

At his atelier in Milan, Italian luthier Raffaello Bozzi crafted this interesting Italian violin – the second of his works in our catalogue – in the year 1939, and it sheds light on new aspects of his oeuvre. The dynamic lines of its upper and lower bouts give the instrument a striking appearance that is rich in character and complemented by the accentuated purfling which was masterfully executed. In light of this Raffaello Bozzi violin’s assertive aesthetic, other features come as a surprise, such as the delicate fluting, the wide span in the elegant purfling and especially the narrow and exquisitely carved sound holes which were sensitively crafted down to the finest details. The interesting tight flames of the two-piece maple back reveals the premium quality of the tone woods which Raffello Bozzi selected for this instrument in good, crack-free condition. Its beautiful reddish-brown varnish was given another protective coat or polish in 1990 by Giuseppe Lucci many years later, and the original varnish underneath appears to be fully intact. In addition to Raffaello Bozzi’s signed label and his mark, the inside of the body also has an original label by Giuseppe Lucci: "riparato e lucidato" (repaired and polished). Upon thoroughly setting it up at our atelier, we worked over the instrument which is now ready to play. We warmly recommend this solid Italian Raffelo Bozzi violin to demanding musicians due to its mature, powerful sound full of timbre. A certificate from Cesare Magrini, Rome is included in the price.
