B.1662, d. 1752, Bologna

Dom Nicolo Amati was the pseudonym of the priest Dom Nicola Marchioni. In all probability a pupil of a member of the Tononi family and possibly Giovanni Guidantus, he worked in an inconsistent style between 1718 and 1748, although generally keeping to the best principles of Bolognese violin making, and retaining the soft red varnish of Giovanni and Carlo Tononi long after it had fallen into disuse in other workshops.
