Azienda Made in Torino Tour The Excellent
The artisans of music

The first Piedmontese Academy for the art of making stringed instruments, founded through the cooperation of the Master luthier Enzo Cena and the Oratorian Fathers, was born in Turin, in the historic heart of the city, at the San Filippo Monument, just opposite the Egyptian Museum.

The guided tour is characterized by the presentation of the Academy, underlining the importance of the location - in fact, the San Filippo complex has a history that intertwines with the tradition of making stringed instruments - to then move on to an introduction to the history of the Piedmontese art of making stringed instruments.

Discover how a violin is made with a curious layout of the exhibition, which is characterized by different tools that trace the phases of construction starting from the choice of wood, passing on to the manufacturing, to arrive at the final instrument.
