Reference Library Makers

B.1663, d. 1719

An often overlooked maker, whose relatively rare work combines his father's Amatese style with a strong Stradivari influence, and often uses a very rich, dark varnish. Vincenzo had three brothers, Giacinto (1661-1697), Carlo (1666-1697) and Giovanni Battista (1653-1711). Although labels with these names are extremely rare, it is almost certain that all were involved to some degree in violin making. Instruments attributed to the Rugeri are dated as late as 1730, and these would have been the work of Vincenzo's son, Francesco.
