One of the delights of slow violin-making is the experiences in between. The unexpected and unplanned, the strange and sometimes wonderful feelings you end up in discovering the unique and surprising in each piece of wood.
Luca Maria Gallo
The modern violin maker must be trained in such a way as to reach a perfect level of creative dexterity, so as to elevate his work beyond the reference of the senses.
The close interaction between Masters and apprentices is fundamental to the learning of the secrets of these Arts whose incomparable Masters: Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati brought international renown to Cremona.
