B. 1621, d. 1712, Bolzano (Bozen)
Important early maker working in the region of south Tyrol which is now part of Italy. Instruments known from 1680 onward are very sophisticated and independent in design, though strongly influenced by Amati. Distinguished by the richly textured deep red varnish which found its way to Venice through the work of other Tyrolean makers. Succeeded by sons, Michael (1677-1730) and Joseph (1680-1722).
