a town of violin
Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square) located at the hightest point of this town, 47 metres above sea level. Twelve streets form the network of streets
around the big Cathedral Square. That is undoubted that Cremona is the first Roman camp.
When we came to this square by way of one of the twelve streets around 11 Monday morning, we stayed there till noon time, I saw
local residence; mother and child, grandfather and granddaughter, either walked into the square or riding a bike.
they gathered here to chat, business discussion, or just simply hanging around. they had fun there while I have fun watching them.
The tradition of stringed-instruments making in Cremona has been one of the most peculiar features in the history of this town. Tourists, who have been coming to see the famous
world of instrument makers from Cremona since the second half of 17th century.
Violins produced by the classical Cremona school between 16th and 18th century are different from contemporary ones produced elsewhere in Italy and in Europe for their refinement of
conception both in their overall form and in that of each one of their components.
A classical violin from Cremona is usually made of very high-quality wood, Norway spruce for the sound board and maple parts for bottom, ribs and neck.
