Umberto Lanaro

Born in Padua in 1930, Umberto worked with his brother Luigi, with whom he moved to Argentina in 1949. Luigi remained there until about 1970, but Umberto returned to Italy in 1954 to work independently in Albignasego, just to the south of Padua. He continued to work until at least 1980, using a very typical twentieth century Italian style, with a clean, neat finish. Varnish varies from a paler yellow in earlier years, to a deep orange-red in his mature period. Several instruments are branded ‘U.L’ inside the back.
