Modern Italian violin, Salvatore Valentinetti, 1998 (certificate Carlo Carfagna)

Salvatore Valentinetti (b. 1927) from Ortona is an internationally renowned violin maker and restorer. This Italian violin made in 1998 by this dedicated Stradivarius connoisseur is patterned after a model of the great Cremonese master, and the violin's well-developed musical qualities will win you over. This violin is very responsive, and its sound is bright, open and resonant, full of substance and character. The top-quality and carefully selected tone woods of this good Italian violin are protected by a soft, intensely reddish-orange oil varnish against a yellow background. The large, conspicuous scroll is blackened around the edges and gives this remarkable violin individuality. It is an original Italian violin with a signed and dated original label as well as several brand marks on the back and upper block – in perfect condition and ready to play. The price includes a certificate by Carlo Carfagna, Rome.
