Maker Background

Marino Capicchioni, a violin maker from the Emilian region, worked in a French guitar factory for a year before settling in Rimini in 1929.

His career in violin making was of 30 years and during those he evolved his instruments, giving them some particular characteristics. At the beginning of his work, he used to make instruments with impersonal precision. In his latest work, he bends over personal interpretations of classical models, such as Guarneri.

The arching in his instruments are higher and the varnish goes from yellowish-orange to brownish-red. When it comes to wood, Marino puts extra attention: he carefully chooses the best materials available, and as a result, we have a particular drama in the wide flaming of the backs and very regular medium-large grain of the tops. Capicchioni’s work can be described as elegant and with excellent sound quality, making it a top pick among soloists.
