Italian violin, probably Mario Gadda, 20th century

This interesting modern Italian violin was probably made by Mario Gadda in Mantova, and its powerful sound has the typically soft note that is common to Italian violins.The interesting model with broad shoulders, solidly crafted beesting corners and a well-rounded table is indicative of the thoroughly considered craftsmanship that was typical in Gadda's circles. It is no contradiction in terms to note that Gadda’s philosophy entailed a close and thoughtful look back at the great classics of Italian violin making. An aesthetic echo of earlier traditions can be seen in this Italian violin’s full and indubitably Italian scroll. The instrument’s sophisticated and luminous reddish-brown varnish radiates a sense of youthful freshness. After having carefully set up this perfectly preserved Italian violin at our specialist atelier for restoration, it is now ready to play, and we warmly recommend it because of its bright sound and its bright, exceptionally radiant character.

A certificate of appraisal can be ordered for this violin.
