These dear friends, are two violin Padovani. Bonfio Guerrino the highest and older, builds handcrafted violins for many years, inheriting the art by his grandfather. When he speaks of his work is tireless and enthusiastic and you just have to listen also fascinated by his knowledge of historical stringed instruments. Giovanni Maistrello younger but no less relevant is the pupil of Guerrino, was involved in violin making in later burning stages of knowledge from his teacher. Both create a true passion for and with their hands, violins of excellent resonance and other stringed instruments, selecting materials with the utmost care, but necessary. Both build on the improved model by Stradivari violins. In this photo we see them involved in a highly successful exhibition of stringed instruments by themselves promoted, in which they explained the construction techniques of the violin to visitors. The great tradition and craftsmanship that Italy can give to the world in the art will continue for a long time.
