In Cremona, Italy, Casa Stradivari will reopen on July 4, 2023. Thanks to the restoration and revitalization project initiated by the Casa Stradivari Foundation, the home where the famous luthier lived and worked will once again welcome visitors. It was on July 4, 1667, that Antonio Stradivari, after having married Francesca Ferraboschi, entered the building on Cremona’s Corso Garibaldi in which he set up his first violin-making workshop.

The newly opened house will be a center for cultural and artistic promotion and will welcome young artisans for training and specialization courses, linked to the themes of the protection of the transmission of knowledge between school and workshop and the relationship between musicians and luthiers.

The intent is to bring the ancient home back to the spirit that animated Antonio Stradivari’s work. For this reason, the workshop activities on the ground floor will be joined by those dedicated to young musicians that will take place on the second floor. The second floor, on the other hand, will be designated for the residence of an internationally renowned artist. The synergy between students, masters and established personalities will be fertile ground for the growth of new talents and the fundamental element for business start-up support for young luthiers. The House will also be open to the public for cultural initiatives and tours.
