Sala Zanoni, Via del Vecchio Passeggio 1, Cremona - 30 September/1 October 2013
EVENT TITLE: New research technologies in the field of violin making.
Organization: MICROTEX, CREMONA TOOLS, TARISIO AUCTIONS.
Musicians, collectors, violin makers, merchants, traders, museums, auction houses, all can benefit from the use of the DISCOVERY CAM technology, an advanced Endoscopic Vision System expressly designed to observe the inner parts of musical instruments, including violins, with high image resolution and without any removal of strings or of other parts of the instrument.
The accurate inspection of all components provides a better evaluation of the wear conditions of the instrument, possibly revealing the need of unexpected restoration, information about the original manufacturing technique, knowledge of possible attribution errors, and sharp photographs of details, stamps and signatures.
The meeting being held to-day among instrument makers, restorers and suppliers, along with the renowned TARISIO auction house, will show the inspection and study advantages of the non-invasive DISCOVERY technology.
The TARISIO Auction house will kindly provide an ancient instrument for this purpose.
The event is dedicated to: Musicians, collectors, restorers, violin makers, dealers, traders, museums, auction houses.
