Violin: A. Stradivari model.

The soundboard is made of top quality straight-grained red spruce from Val di Fiemme. The one-piece back is made of deep-figured Balkan maple. The varnish is a combination of alcohol and oil and the colour is brown with yellow reflections. During the painting process, various techniques to give an antique look to the violin were used. The instrument was built in the luthier school "Bottega di Parma" in Parma under the supervision of Maestro Desiderio Quercetani, who guaranteesĀ the quality standards of the "Bottega di Parma" brand.
