Violin by Spirito Sorsana Cuneo 1736

Spirito Sorsana was initially thought to have studied violin making with Gioffredo Cappa, but while that connection makes sense in terms of chronology and geography, it does not hold up under scrutiny of their style or working methods. Historical sources show the existence of a Sorzana family in Turin, which may explain the similarities between Sorsana’s work and that of Giovanni Francesco Celoniato, who also worked in Turin. His original labels date from the mid-1720s to the mid-1730s. Thanks to @tarisio for this bite-sized nugget of info on this enigmatic maker.
To quote a recent local concert master who stopped in for a rehair and gave this violin a nice workout, “I really like this one!”
