A Violin by Pietro Pallotta

Violin by Pietro Pallotta, Perugia, c.1800

This violin was crafted by an Italian Mastermaker at the end of the 18th century in his own personal style, model, and approach. It shows off Pallotta's elegance and inventiveness, deeply immersed in the 1700s Italian tradition, yet very particular and authentic in his decisions, from the choice of local wood sources for the back, sides, neck, and head to the constructive approach that made the acoustics of his instruments so famous amongst musicians.

      Full description

      This violin by Pietro Pallotta exemplifies his craftsmanship with its meticulously crafted small soundholes and symmetrically shaped scroll. The flatter arching and distinct beechwood purfling set it apart, while the choice of mottled maple for the back adds a unique beauty. Pallotta was a distinct maker from the late 18th and early 19th centuries from the region of Umbria, Italy. Not much is known about his life and work, but his neat craftsmanship reveals his skills as a violin maker.
