We are delighted to feature this gorgeous violin by award winning maker, Marco Cargnelutti. This violin is inspired by of the famous "Il Toscano" violin made in 1690 by Stradivarius.

The original 'Tuscan' violin was made in 1690 by Antonio Stradivari. Of all his violins made in the period previous to 1704, the 'Tuscan' represents most perfectly the greatness of Stradivari's ability. The bold, original style, perfect technical workmanship, and splendid all-round tone, completely convince one for the first time of his great skill and originality.

This particular violin was Cargnelutti's submission to the XVII Pisogne Violin Making Competition 2023. The violin is finished with beautiful Cocobolo wood fittings and is currently set up with Evah Pirazzi Gold strings.

About The Maker

Marco Cargnelutti

Born in 1983 in Gemona Del Friuli (UD), a small town about 100km north-east of Venice, he started getting interested in violin making after visiting a workshop in his region. He then decides to attend the A. Stradivari International Violin Making School in Cremona and, under the guidance of different Masters (Angelo Sperzaga, Wanna Zambelli, but also Massimo Negroni, Luca Bellini and Daniele Scolari), he learns the Cremonese traditional construction of bowed string instruments.

He graduated in 2012, and soon after he took apprenticeships in two workshops in Cremona, with Giorgio Scolari and Luca Bellini. At the same time he had the possibility to learn also from other Cremonese violin makers, such as Davide Sora, continuing then acoustic and aesthetic research in his hometown.

For his instruments he uses only seasoned wood, chosen with accuracy, paying particular attention to acoustic properties.

At the beginning of 2015 he opens his workshop in Gemona del Friuli, where he builds violins, violas and cellos mainly based on Stradivarius models, and paying particular attention to great Masters of the last century, such as G. Ornati and F. Garimberti.

From 2015 he is member of the Associazione Liutaria Italiana - Liutai Professionisti (A.L.I.)
