Violin making, a life’s passion

It is nice to discover on visiting the new Museum of Musical Instruments of the Accademia di S. Cecilia in Rome that an important space is dedicated to an open violin making workshop. Thus it is possible to observe violin makers at work, to see them maintain and preserve instruments inside a workshop and surrounded by their tools, many of which are still made by hand and a source of curiosity themselves. The Museum management had wanted such a live space and it was realized with great insight by architect Renzo Piano; it was here that the tools and objects from the workshop of Dante Regazzoni have found a proper setting.

Dante Paolo Regazzoni

[...] In 1976 Regazzoni participated in the 1st International Triennial miviolas and a violin, once again demonstrating his predilection for the viola. The viola of 1976 and the violin of the same year are both splendid works; the violin label bears the writing “student of G. and L. Bisiach.”
