The Academia Cremonensis is a School of Violinmaking and Bowmaking. Students learn how to make a violin or a bow.
The visit consists in an explanation of how it's made a Violin, and a Bow, the woods used, a lot of curiosity about our art, about making, varnishes and... prices of violins.
You can touch and smell the wood, you can take some chips of wood...
After you'll go upstairs into the school, in the classroom with students at work, with the smel of cutted woods, looking at the tools they use, and speaking with teachers and students, they come from all over the World, maybe you can meet someone from your country. The school is inside a beautyful historical palace that gives to all the visit the right landscape. After the visit, you'll understand better the "Violin World" and after, if you'll go at the Museo del Violino in Cremona, you can appreciate better this art.
