Mr Stefano Trabucchi's Cremona violin making workshopMy workshop is at Via Bella Rocca 14, in the centre of Cremona, next to the new “Museo del Violino” (Violin Museum).

It’s my treasure chest, where I keep all my secrets safe and where I cultivate my passion and profession every single day, looking for excellence and perfection.

I personally make violins, violas, cellos, and double basses (on demand), sold and appreciated worldwide. I also make evaluations, repair and restoration of antique instruments.

My assistant Mario Capelli has been working with me since 2004. He now creates and brands his own instruments.

We produce about 15 instruments every year with the sole aim to enhance the Italian lutherie heritage, in particular Cremona violin making.

Workshop opening time:  Monday – Saturday / 8.30-12.30 a.m. 2.00-7.00 p.m.
Preferably by appointment.
