This Italy violin by 1958 Luigi Lanaro is made while he was heading the Violin making school in Mexico City. Born in Vicenza in 1920, Luigi Lanaro learned his craft from Giuseppe Pedrazzini  and Gaetano Sgarabotto, two of the most important and influential representatives of the Milanese school in the early 20th century.

He won awards at the violin-making competitions in Cremona and Bagnacavallo and received great recognition amongst his peers. Humble as he might be, he instead placed greater emphasis on attaining the respect of demanding musicians.
