The Makers of Tuscany

This latest publication by Florian Leonhard is the result of many years of research lead by organologist Maria da Gloria Leitao Venceslau. The book celebrates the makers of Florence and the region of Tuscany, from the famous Gabbrielli and Piattellini families to less well-known makers, and uncovering significant discoveries through the course of the research. This much needed addition to the canon of expertise builds significantly on our understanding of this important region of violin making, with Florian’s expert analysis of the characteristics of each maker.
