Geoffredo Cappa, Saluzzo
Cappas date of birth is still not known exactly, but it is assumed that he was born some time during 1644. He may also have been an apprentice of the Amati brothers, as was Stradivari. What is certain is that he was very much orientated toward the Amati model. Due to this the tone of his instruments is usually best suited for chamber music. Being able to study such an outstanding violin animates one to copy it. In this manner I have concerned myself extensively with Geoffredo Cappa and have made several copies of one of his works.
