THE MAKING OF A CLASSIC
The Museo del Violino showcases rare and priceless historical instruments, spanning several centuries, that reflect Cremona’s deep tradition of unparalleled artisanal skill.
Unrivaled craftsmanship, specially treated wood, hundreds of years of aging, plus several generations of master playing help produce the exceptionally rich and brilliant tones of Stradivari instruments.
The Vesuvius violin was meticulously recorded within the Auditorium Giovanni Arvedi – an acoustically rich concert hall designed by Italian architect Giorgio Palù, with consultation from pioneering acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota.
