Gasparo Piattellini

Gasparo and his brother Luigi worked in Florence, and were clearly pupils of Giovanni Battista Gabrielli. Gasparo’s work appears from around 1735, and follows the Gabrieli style closely, in a blend of Italian and Stainer modelling. The soundholes are quite distinctive, set very wide apart, and the varnish is very fine in the Florentine tradition, being pale and clear golden-brown. There seem to be no instruments recorded later than 1791.
