This violin was made by Stefano Scarampella, a luthier based in Mantua, Italy, who was one of the more important makers of the late 19th and early 20th century. The instrument was made at the zenith of Scarampella’s career and is in excellent condition. It boasts a rich sound quality and in recent years has been loaned for numerous performance concerts and quartet and orchestral work.
