Pietro Antonio Landolfi
(c. 1730 – 1795)
Pietro Antonio Landolfi studied under his father, Carlo Ferdinando, whose prolific output dominated making in Milan from the 1750s onwards. Following the deaths of the older generation makers such as Carlo Giuseppe and Carlo Antonio Testore, as well as the Grancinos, it was Carlo Ferdinando Landolfi who became the preeminent ...Read More flag bearer of the Milanese school. During the last 25 years or so of Carlo's career, Pietro Antonio worked alongside his father together with Pietro Giovanni Mantegazza, who in turn was responsible for progressing the Milanese school into the 19th century.
Although relatively few instruments can be uniquely attributed to Pietro Antonio when compared to the larger output of his father, Pietro Antonio's involvement is evident or likely assumed in instruments produced by the Landolfi workshop. Some examples have a harder varnish than his father's, though there remains the tendency to follow a typical model and design reminiscent of Carlo Ferdinando.
