THE HOUSE

Nestled in the heart of Cremona, a city world-renowned for its master violinmakers, lies Casa Stradivari, the ancient home of Antonio Stradivari, the most famous violinmaker in history. It is here that Antonio Stradivari crafted numerous musical instruments, masterpieces of refined craftsmanship and superb acoustics.

Since 1667, when Stradivari married Francesca Ferraboschi and moved into this house, it has been at the center of Cremona's violinmaking tradition, a testament to an invaluable cultural legacy. The art of Cremonese violinmaking has been recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, underscoring the global significance of this craft and Casa Stradivari's contribution to it.

  

As well as its role as a popular attraction, Casa Stradivari also hosts a violinmaking masterclass, music masterclasses and an artistic residency and represents a cultural crossroad for the community. To find out more about Casa Stradivari, please get in touch or visit us in person. We look forward to welcoming you.
