Travel back to 1732, when Carlo Giuseppe Testore learned the craft of violin-making from his father. Giuseppe, a talent himself, eventually became known as the highest skilled luthier in his family.
Carlo Testore learned much of his craft from his teacher, Giovanni Grancino. He created beautiful instruments that would go on to rival Grancino’s. In 1697, Testore moved to Milan and opened his own workshop, where he continued to create violins, cellos, and double basses of exceptional quality.
