Liuteria Piemontese, Annibale Fagnola



Hannibal Fagnola. This first major monograph, part of a much larger project that is closely related to all the great Piedmontese violin making modern, was devoted to Hannibal Fagnola, a character certainly atypical of violin-making environment of his time not only an artisan devoted to his activity, but also a man skillful in managing the strictly commercial aspects of his profession, qualities that have made it the forerunner of an essentially modern conception of the craft of the luthier.
