After acquiring the new denomination of “Cultural District of Violin Making – Cremona”, the District has embarked on a process of approaching the local violin-making community with a direct involvement of craftsmen working in the territory. The main goals of this path are:

  • consolidating and safeguarding the violin-making knowledge and know-how through professional education and continuing high-level training;
  • consolidating the relationship between the university research Laboratories, the School of violin making and the violin-makers’ workshops: the so-called “widespread workshop”;
  • increasing the opportunities for knowledge development through the study of the material heritage included in civic collections preserved at the MdV and through the production of an up-to-date catalog of the instruments belonging to the Organic-Didactic Museum of the International School of Violin Making;
  • increasing awareness of the local context and knowledge at national and international level.
