STRADIVARI'S OBJECTS 
Moulds, models, drawings, tools used by Antonio Stradivari and today on display at the Violin's Museum: they can offer a fundamental and unique contribution to the knowledge of the great violin-maker and of his masterpieces. The majority of them were donated to Cremona Municipality in 1930 by Giuseppe Fiorini.
