Francesco Emiliani

Emiliani was born in Bologna in around 1680, but worked in Rome on the via del Governo Vecchio until his death in 1736. He used a Stainer model, and his craftsmanship is delicate and beautifully finished, benefitting from a soft golden varnish. His work is often compared to that of his contemporary in Rome, David Tecchler, and cellos by both makers are especially esteemed.
