At Il Salabue our activities are not limited to the editorial sector; over time we have also become specialised in organising shows and exhibitions of top-notch bowed and plucked stringed instruments, concentrating on the historical period between the seventeenth and twentieth centuries. We also organise side events, such as seminars, conferences and round tables, involving the highest authorities in the sector. We collaborate with other companies and institutions, concerning loans of instruments for concerts and musical recordings.
