Panormo, Vincenzo Trusiano
B. ca 1734, Sicily, d.1813, London
A celebrated Anglo-Italian maker of the second half of the eighteenth century, his assumed originas in Monreale, Sicily have not yet been proven with documentary evidence, although his family name is given on labels as ‘Trusiano’, ‘Panormo’ being Latinised form of Palermo. In 1863 he was in Rome, where his eldest son Francois was born, and his second son Joseph was born in Naples in 1767. In 1781 he was working in Paris, but the 1789 Revolution forced another move, to Dublin and then to London, wher he settled in about 1790, working for John Betts. His work is very strongly classically influenced, and he was a leader of a general movement back to rediscovering the merits of the Amati and Stradivari school after much effort had been concentrated on the high-arched Stainer model. His sons, Joseph (1767-1837), George (1776-1852) and Louis (1784-1862) were all very active and influential in the London violin trade.
