B. 1743 Cassine, d. 1793, Venice.
Successor to the workshop of Giorgio Serafin in 1777. A very refined maker who sustained the Venetian school of violin making beyond the end of the classical period in Cremona, where it had already expired by 1750. Instruments have an Amatese quality, but with a full and tonally effective arching, and extremely fine orange-red varnish. His pupils, Pietro Novello and Marc Antonio Cerin could not continue his success much beyond 1790, and the slightly prolonged period of classical lutherie ended in Venice before the end of the century.
