This modern Italian violin was made in 1980 and bears Mario Gaddas label and brandstamps „MG “. The violin model after Stefano Scarampella is more than the bare recourse to an important name; it is expression of a continuous tradition.

Thus the resemblance to Stefano Scarampellas works became also a constitutive element in his style. The special character of this particular violin is expressed by the large and very distinctive scroll cut in characteristic form. With its brilliant sound, rich in overtones, this violin shows playing qualities worthy of its ancestors. The original maker's certificate is included.
