1) The “friends of Stradivari” Honorary Membership is created within the Fondazione Museo del Violino Antonio Stradivari, Cremona

2) The purpose of this Membership is to create a global network of all those – individuals or institutions – who are owners, caretakers or users of stringed instruments from the classic Cremonese period, with the goal of promoting study, exchange of ideas, stringed instrument making exhibitions, publications, and other initiatives related to historical Cremonese stringed instrument making.
