Vittorio and Marcello Villa are
Italian violin makers. In their workshop in Cremona,
Italy, they make violins, violas, cellos, bowed
baroque instruments according to Stradivari, Guarneri,
Amati's violinmaking style.
Both Marcello and Vittorio 's particular passion is reproduction of Stradivari and Amati inlaid instruments, which they believe to be the quintessence of artistic and technical perfection.
Marcello Villa was born in Monza in 1965. He graduated in 1983 at the International School of Violin-making in Cremona, obtaining the highest possible merit in his final year. Marcello Villa was awarded in many violin making competitions as you can read in his web pages. His instruments distinguish themselves for many reasons: beauty and fine acoustics. For many years he has been dedicated to the reproduction of classical Italian instruments. He has made copies of instruments by Andrea Amati, Nicola Amati, Andrea Guarneri, Francesco Ruggeri, Guarneri del Gesł, Antonio Stradivari, all of which have been particularly appreciated in the U.S.A., Germany and Japan. Baroque-specialised musicians have shown great interest in his period instruments: viola d'amore, viola da gamba, pochette, lira da braccio, baroque violin, baroque viola, baroque cello.
Vittorio Villa was born in
Monza in 1961. He has a Conservatory Diploma in Violin
playing and has performed as a violinist with
important Italian orchestras. He graduated in 1992 at
the International School of Violin-making in Cremona.
Also teacher at the same institute, he furthermore had
the opportunity to research the aspects of physical
acoustics in the field of bowed instruments. It is due
to this background, both as a performer and as a
researcher, that Vittorio Villa's instruments are
sought after by musicians for their sound quality in
addition to their fine workmanship.
