Liuterie - Violin handcraft
Cremona is historically linked with music. Apart from great composers like Ponchielli and Monteverdi, Cremona saw the invention of the violin in 1530 by Andrea Amati. It was Antonio Stradivari, almost two centuries later, that brought the art of playing violin to the top. Nowadays, Cremona still holds the international school of Violin and some ancient shops where the maestros keep creating these wonderful instruments.
