Each piece is unique, skilfully made from seasoned timber and acoustically impeccable, then decorated by visual artists from all over the world, using a variety of techniques, expressing and impressing the artist’s own style and identity on the instrument.
We are used to think about violin making as a self-contained established tradition, but this dialogue among the arts makes it possible for a classic instrument to evolve, without changing its shape and, most importantly, its sound. It’s a mutation process which only affects the surface, not the essence.
No two musical instruments are alike to begin with. Each artist then, using non-invasive techniques, further personalises the piece with absolute creative freedom. And thus a truly unique collection is born.
In a time characterised by intense and fecund artistic contamination, “Violino d’Autore” is a new encounter between the arts: the traditional luthier art of Ezia di Labio, the fine arts and literary creativity.
The exhibits of “Violino d’Autore” are outstanding, one-of-a-kind events: musical events where the concert is integral part of the exhibit, so that the instruments/works of art may express their coupled aesthetic and acoustic value.
