Was the 17th-century maker Francesco Rugeri trained by Nicolò Amati? This violin appears to show the clear influence of the great master, with arching close to Amati’s late style and f-holes showing Rugeri’s personal interpretation of an Amati model. Conversely, the head seems to anticipate the work of Carlo Bergonzi, some decades later. A fascinating violin by a highly regarded Cremonese maker. Includes measurements

‘The violin looks slender and smart, in spite of its normal dimensions. The body outline is very similar to the large model used by Nicolò: the grand pattern. If we superimpose the outline of this violin on to others from the Amati workshop, not surprisingly we find that Rugeri’s fits perfectly in the C-bouts.’ – Carlo Chiesa in the December 2012 issue
