The Gagliano family, is a celebrated lineage of Italian violin makers with a legacy dating back to the 18th century. The family's craftsmanship has left an indelible mark on the world of violin making. The Gagliano family's enduring presence in the world of violin making, spanning nearly two centuries, contributed to Naples becoming a significant hub for violin production. Their instruments, each crafted with a unique style, catered to evolving customer preferences and maintained a reputation for quality and affordability.

The Fratelli Gagliano, Giuseppe, Giovanni and Antonio, are son of Nicolò Gagliano, grandsons of Alessandro Gagliano and nephews of Gennaro. Giuseppe displayed exceptional talent, while Antonio often collaborated with his brother, and Giovanni’s instruments are somewhat rare.
