Pevere was born in 1891 and established as a luthier in Ferrera, where he was a pupil and assistant of Ettore Soffritti. After Soffritti’s death in 1928, Pevere continued working in a virtually indistinguishable style, sometimes using Soffritti’s name on the label. He worked with great energy, producing many instruments in a range of quality and finish, using classical models and a rich orange to red coloured varnish. At his death in 1963 he is reputed to have made 400 violins, 10 violas and 20 cellos.
