About Marco Anedda
Marco Anedda graduated from Gubbio violin making school, he trained as an apprentice with Sorgentone and Mecatti in Florence. However, willing to create his own instruments, in 2005 he began to work in Monterchi, within a vast amphitheatre of mountain and forest, in the Tuscan Valtiberina. His violins, violas, and cellos can be assembled both with modern and antique (baroque and classical) schemes.
Here, far from the frantic atmosphere of the big cities, Marco takes care of his instruments, trying to give to each of them a peculiar and unique identity. He also repairs, and set up and upkeeps maintenance on violins, violas and cellos. At the moment, his instrument are being played and appreciated by professional musicians all over the world. As Marco often likes to say: his instruments travel more than he does himself.
When he is not busy in his workshop, you can find him playing with his daughter Adele, a budding violinist, or possibly with his cello, of which he is an enthusiastic amateur.
