Active ca 1638-1680, Pesaro

A distinctive, in some ways primitive maker whose work has been frequently confused with that of Gaspar da Salo and Maggini. Generally used plain wood, with a low arching, long corners and close-set Andrea Amati-like soundholes. A distinctive feature of the heads is a flat triangular area between the flutes on the front face of the volute. Both Fabio and Ludovico Mariani are also recorded as violin makers in Pesaro, and the latter's work has been identified, but their relationship to Antonio is not certain.
