During my very first year of the Violinmaking School in Cremona I went with my Master Riccardo Bergonzi to choose wood. When we entered the warehouse, we met the school guard throwing away lots of old things. Bergonzi asked if it would have been possible to keep something of those items and the school guard said yes, because it would have been thrown away anyway. Immediately Bergonzi gave me two items and said: “These are yours!”. One old and damaged violin working mold and one white PVC violin pattern with a handwritten: Mod.ced.dal Prof. Pasqualini N°1. Years later I made the forms and discovered what my Master quickly recognized a treasure. Since then I make this violin very often and I like this skinny and beautiful shape because it has a superb nice sound.
