The ancient art of the luthier: sensory experience

With this particular and unusual experience we will discover an ancient profession, full of charm and beauty: the art of the luthier. We will learn about the art of violin making: the design, construction and restoration of bowed and plucked stringed instruments. The name derives from the lute, a plucked instrument widely used until the Baroque era. Through our guided tour which respects ancient rules dating back to the classical era we will marvel at the artisanal rules which have remained almost unchanged in five hundred years. The rich and refined knowledge of the luthier will immerse us in an artistic dimension full of objects and smells never experienced.

In the luthier’s workshop we will also live a sensory as well as cultural experience. Antonio Stradivari, perhaps the most famous Italian luthier acquired supremacy in the production of luxury instruments in 1680. His violins became an example of perfection all over the world and their characteristics became points of reference for the entire lutherie, to the point of influencing the artistic training of almost every luthier. At the end of the visit, a famous French cellist will play the sound of a hand-built cello in an exclusive intimate concert.
