Marco Pedrini

Violins, violas, cellos

Marco Pedrini was born in Codogno in 1983. Since he was a child he has been captured by music and by wood-working.

At the age of 14 he started attending the A. Stradivari International School of Violinmaking in Cremona where in 2000 he received the prize “Grandi – Taglietti” as best student and where in 2002 he obtained his diploma under Maestro Giorgio Cé.

Then he attended the professional course of the Lombardy Region and, at the end of it, he did the apprenticeship at the workshop of Master Giorgio Grisales. In this workshop, he refined the techniques of the stringed instruments construction.

In 2007 he decided to open his violinmaking workshop in Castelnuovo Bocca d’Adda (LO). From November 2008 he has his workshop in the city centre of Cremona.

His production regards the classical Cremonese instruments: violin, viola, cello and double bass.

The models from which he gets the inspiration are the following: Stradivari, Guarneri, Ornati, Garimberti and Montagnana, besides to his own personal models. He makes modern instruments but he also makes copies of antique instruments, besides making restoration works and repairs on antique instruments.
