The privilege of owning a work of art finds its highest expression in the ethical choice of the share. Within the project "friends of Stradivari", in collaboration with the Museum of the City Stradivari of Cremona, was promoted to a project of "hospitality" of important historical instruments of the Cremonese violin making belonging to private collections. Among the first to join the project, the heirs of Sau Wing Lam and Si-Hon-Ma. So you are associated with The Henry Ford Museum and the Royal Academy of Music in London. Cremona, a world center of violin making, to the holders of these instruments provides the opportunity, with all the guarantees of safety and professionalism appropriate, to exhibit in the prestigious national museum masterpieces normally barred to the public, so they can be admired, studied, exploited and appreciated by visitors experienced and qualified as those who attend the city and the museum dedicated to violin making.
