Violin by Paolo Di Barbieri Genoa 1939

Paolo De Barbieri (1889 in Genoa – 1964) was an Italian violin maker. Trained in Cesare Candi’s workshop, Paolo DeBarbieri is now considered one of the best violin makers of the school of Genova. His style changes greatly during the years, but it is always easy recognisable for his unmistakable making technique, based on the ‘continuous’ linings (the linings are not mitred or set in the central blocks, but pass over – two pieces only per plate instead of six). His workmanship is fine and inspired, and reveal very good taste and good technique.
