Cremona Musica International Exhibitions 2017
Cremona and the music
The city of Cremona and the music: an old century-old history that makes the city the world’s cradle of lute manufacturing, craftsmanship of great sophistication, handed down for centuries of dedication since the second half of the sixteenth century, when the art became a fine craft and expanded throughout Europe thanks to training initiatives of modern lutherie schools, from Brescia to Cremona, from Lyon to Füssen.
Even today, those who choose to play a hand-made instrument of craftsmanship, choose to play at a high level, that the fine art of the violin can guarantee with accurate materials and techniques, the result of the study, the manual skills and the sensitivity of the lute masters. Stradivarius, Amati, Guarneri are the most representative names in the history of liutherie.
With its most affirmed craftsmen’s shops, in 2012 the city won the UNESCO’s award to the traditional Cremonese liutherie as immaterial cultural heritage that Cremona preserves and enhances.
