A “not to be left” event for all amateur musicians
Cremona is the cradle of violin-making and the birthplace of the Stradivari, Amati and Guarneri families, who are internationally recognised as the greatest luthiers of all times.
This is the reason why the Cremona violinmaking tradition has been included in the Unesco’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. Cremona has been able to preserve its musical vocation and to keep its international violinmaking leadership throughout the centuries, and today it is the worldwide largest violin making district. Mondomusica has grown in this unique artistic and cultural environment becoming the world’s number one violin-making trade show.
The experience gained in an almost thirty years of uninterrupted activity and its international success – attested by exhibitors and visitors alike – have created the perfect place to host – starting with 2011 – Piano Experience, the only European exhibition dedicated to pianos and keyboards. 2014 witnessed the launch of the Acoustic Guitar Village, the new point of reference for the six-string market. To complete the musical offer, in 2015 Cremona Winds was born, an exclusive space dedicated to handcrafted wind instruments. Cremona Musica times four: string instruments, pianos, guitars and wind instruments.
At Cremona Musica, (30th September – 2nd October, 2016) in a single fair – just an hour car ride from Milan – also all amateur musicians can find the best instruments and accessories from the most qualified international makers.
