Association for the promotion
of violin making art, of music, of art
Founded in Brescia (Italy) on January 2001 thanks to the enterprise of a team of professionals, “Officina Musicale” promotes musical and artistic meetings, exhibitions, conferences and festivals. It pays special attention in bringing Lombard and Venetian cultural background out, although not exclusively, either about historical richness or contemporaneity.
Because of its history and tradition, the city of Brescia has been the ideal set up to start Officina’s project off. The mix of violin making art, music, architecture and figurative arts from XVI and XVII Centuries, as well as on the following and current ones, offers significant hints to go into scientific and divulgative matters, so that it might involve not only researchers or specialists, but also various people.
