BAROQUE VIOLIN "SAN MARCO"



This powerful painting of Vittore Carpaccio from the year 1516 gave the first impulse for the genesis of the baroque violin "San Marco". It shows the heraldic animal of the city, the lion of St Mark as it claims the supremacy of the city-state over land and sea. The right forefoot is put on an book with the letters: "PAX TIBI MARCE EVANGELISTA MEUS". The legend tells that with those words spoken by an angel, St Mark was promised to find his final rest here in the lagoon. Centuries later, in the year 828 his relics were brought to Venice in an adventurous way, and since then he is the patron saint of the city, symbolized by the winged lion.

Those two attributes, the winged lion and the book of promise are inlayed with ivory both into the fingerboard and the tailpiece, artistically engraved:



  • well dried soundwood
  • decoration of the edges: rhombs and dots of mammoth-ivory, framed on both sides by a double inlay
  • fingerboard and tailpiece: model "Venezia"
  • sound: powerful, silvery and rich overtones
