Girolamo Amati II


Violin maker
(1649 – 1740)

Nicolò Amati's great success in fostering the art of violin making in Cremona produced a generation of luminaries, including Francesco and Vincenzo Rugeri, Andrea ...Read More Guarneri, and Antonio Stradivari, and contributed to the spread of violin making to other cities. Unfortunately for his son Girolamo (or Hieronymous) Amati II, as a result of that expansion the late 17th century was a fiercely competitive environment for violin making. Despite his perseverance and some modest success after inheriting his father Nicolò's shop in 1684, Girolamo left Cremona for Piacenza in 1697, probably because of legal and financial problems. Instruments dated after 1700 are very rare, and his death in 1740 marked the end of the great Amati family of violin makers. Read Less
