Gaetano Sgarabotto


Violin maker
(1878 – 1959)

Originally self-taught, Gaetano Sgarabotto moved to Milan in 1901 to work with Riccardo Antoniazzi and later Leandro Bisiach. He returned to Vincenza in 1905 and moved to Parma in 1926, where he eventually ended up for good in 1957 after periods in Vincenza ...Read More and Brescia.

Much of his work was for Bisiach, and in general it is precise and elegant with some hints of personality. Sgarabotto often used Cremonese models, one in particular after Amati and Stradivari.

The heads, which have a very small second curve in the scroll, are quite recognizable. Read Less
