B.ca 1735, d. ca 1790, Mantua

The leading maker in Mantua, following Pietro Guarneri, Antonio Zanotti and his presumed teacher Camillo Camilli. Worked in a slightly coarsened Cremonese style, with an authentic technique acquired through Camilli from Guarneri. A bold, Stradivarian style with a powerful sound, but substituting the great Cremonese varnish with a slightly harder recipe.
