The trade of stringed musical instrument making and restoration is called 'Liuteria' (in Italian) and a violin-maker is called a 'liutaio'(in Italian). Among the earliest makers was Andrea Amati who worked in Cremona, Italy from around 1560. Many of the most famous historical violin makers worked in Cremona.
James Robinson began his career by studying violin making in Cremona (from 1971) with the renowned masters; GB Morassi, F. Bissolotti and G.Scarabotto.
