Pietro Antonio Landolfi

Pietro Antonio Landolfi studied under his father Carlo Ferdinando but never achieved the same level of craftsmanship. His varnish was harder than his father’s, and his instruments are rather higher-built, a trait that can also be seen in the violins produced in the Landolfi workshop after 1760.

Pietro’s career as a violin maker was relatively short, and few instruments dated after 1770 survive today. The violin circa 1760 clearly shows the influence of his father, and is made on a virtually identical model to his father’s circa 1750 violin.
