Mario Gadda, Italian violin after Stefano Scarampella

This modern Italian violin by Mario Gadda, a 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 brilliant sound, rich in overtones, this Mario Gadda instrument shows playing qualities worthy of its ancestors.
