The magic of the Stradivarius: the most beautiful violins in the world
Detail, Violin, Andrea Amati, c. 1560. These violins are actually worth much more than a stradivarious! Stradivariouses were made from the 1700-1800s
The ribs of Sacconi's violin on display at MIM are gorgeously embellished.
"Ever since I was 9 years old it has been my dream to own a Stradivarius violin. Maybe one day with enough hard work, sweat and tears I will own one of these masterpieces."
