Cremona’s Cultural District of Violin Making brings together violin makers and municipal, academic and scientific institutions to promote lutherie education and research, writes Chiara Bondioni

The Cultural District of Violin Making is a project organised by the Municipality of Cremona to support musical culture and violin making in Cremona. It brings together the activities of organisations responsible for education, training and research in these two areas. The District has its origins in the Cultural District of the Province of Cremona, one of six districts in Lombardy promoted and supported financially by the Fondazione Cariplo. This District, which was launched in 2010 and covered a large geographical area, gradually set itself specific and more detailed aims, identifying research and training in music and violin making as the key areas to develop. In 2015 the District became an urban project: the Municipality of Cremona, with the support of the Fondazione Cariplo and the Fondazione Arvedi-Buschini, took the reins and the project changed shape, with violin making taking on a primary role. The project also received support from the Lombardy Region. Since 2017 the District has sought to involve the violin making community by allowing individual violin makers to become members.
