The aim of “Liuteria Scarli” by Emanuele Fabio Fortunato, is to revalue the historical patrimony of italian stringed instruments making especially the Neapolitan, the Cremonese and the Bolognese one, starting from ‘700 to ‘900; it makes violins, violas, cellos, basses inspired by instrument models worked by Italian famous stringed instruments makers of the past from Gagliano, Stradivari, Guarneri up to Fiorini, Sannino, Poggi, etc.. All the instruments made in a workshop have origin after research works and recordings carried out on original instruments kept in private precious collections and Italian academies of music that let us go back to the shapes, thicknesses and varnishes used during the best period of the Italian stringed instruments makers: “the Eighteenth Century”.
For the construction of our violins we double seasonal woods and natural varnishes of alcohool and oil in which we proudly maintain our secret formula. The wood used for the stringed instruments he makes is all over 35 years old. Acoustic studies that we assidually experiment in collaboration with expert engineers of sound that permit us to obtain sound results.
With particular attention we work our homemade instruments without using precise machines that could even ruin the wood’s molecular make-up, in fact only the sensibility and tendernous of expert hands can cut and mold the pieces of wood with respect to it’s own molecular structure.
