We talk about baroque music, classical music; Baroque violin, classical violin, electric violin... this elegant instrument has been influenced by different musical currents.

It is said that its origin is Arab-Muslim but, it became famous thanks to the luthiers Italians of the Renaissance before having several changes with the passing of the epochs, until developing as we know it today, the electric violin.

  • The origin of the violin, remains a mystery, since it took several centuries for us to know the instrument we are using today.

The rise of the violin in Italy

The first authentic violin dates back to the year 1564

Ordered by Catherine Medicí for her son Carlos IX. It is worth noting that, from that moment, he began to be an instrument of royalty, since the violin was used in popular parties.

The Amanti workshop gained a very great reputation. The family, and all their descendants, were responsible for continuing the tradition.

The city of Cremona became the cradle of the violin. In his defect, all Italy became reference for all the musicians and luthiers, at that time until our days.
