Violin Making, Master of the Piedmontese school
"Violin Making, Masters of the Piedmontese school" is the title of the collateral exhibition of music instruments that took place in Turin, simultaneously with the first review of “Torino Antiquaria” 2013, an important meeting of merchants and collectors of antiques.It was a great dutiful tribute to Piedmontese violin making, one of the most important Schools of makers of bowed stringed instruments, which has been known for three centuries thanks to the evident characteristic expressive traits, through which each violin maker was able, however, to develop his personality and style.The exhibition devoted to the "Excellences" has highlighted the highly artistic regional Piedmont craft, unquestioned cultural heritage admired, sought after and pursued world-wide.
