B. 1675, Bologna, d. 1730, Venice.

Taught by his father Giovanni, Carlo is generally considered the more important maker, although some of his instruments have an exaggeratedly high arch, and can be variable in workmanship. Sometime after 1713 he moved to Venice where he continued his production in more diverse styles, sometimes using a rather harder, dark red varnish. He probably worked with other luthiers in their production, but made use of a brand mark with his initials burned into the lower ribs.
