Scrollavezza and the Parma School of
Violin-Making present "Liuteria Parmense",
a cultural organisation which currently numbers over twenty luthiers
and which is open to everyone sharing our will to protect and promote
this violin-making tradition.
The Association, founded in autumn 2001, is a consequence of
the strong ties which already existed between the ex students of the
Parma School of Violin Making: In fact most of us clearly felt
we came from an original tradition which finds its roots in the school
founded by M° Renato Scrollavezza, and is connected with
the older history of violin-making in Emilia-Romagna and Lombardia
as well. We believe that much of the interest and charm of Italian
violin-making lies in its spontaneity and in the original styles expressed
by the various Schools during the centuries.
Liuteria Parmense aims at protecting and promoting the tradition
to which we belong, and is committed in fields such as education,
the organisation of courses, seminars and other cultural initiatives.
