On October 24th the “friends of Stradivari” annual meeting took place in the bautiful Aditorium Giovanni Arvedi.
Thanks to our “friends” support, over the past few years we were able to promote an incredible “hospitaity” project. Within this project we have organized exhibitions in our museum with rare instruments belonging to the Cremonese classical school, from all around the world. We also had exhibitions abroad (in Russia, USA…) with our instruments.
This year it was possible to attend to the event both in person and online, in order to include as many friends as possible, that due to the global health situation couldn’t come to Cremona.
Friends from all around the world gave their contribution to the event by giving a brief speech via web. During the event there was also a presentation of the five strings cello Amaryllis Fleming, made by Girolamo Amati in 1600, belonging to the Amaryllis Fleming foundation, now on display in the hall of the Museo del Violino. The cello was played in an excellent performance by the Maestro Mario Brunello.
Was made also a presentation of a new CD, STRAVAGANZE BAROCCHE, edited by Mdv Cremona and Museo del Violino, with two instruments made by Stradivari in 1679: the Hellier violin, played by Federico Guglielmo and the Sabionari guitar, made by Diego Cantalupi.
