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. This violin-maker from Bologna had bought this precious collection, ten years before, from the heirs of the Earl Cozio di Salabue, who had received it from Paolo Stradivari, the youngest son of Antonio.  Some objects, instead, come from Ceruti workshop and they were donated to the town in 1898. Still nowadays, the objects represent a model for the makers coming from all round the world.
