Marco Tiella in Tokyo

We met about 15 years ago when I still lived in St.Petersburg, Russia. At that time I was a member of the Fellowship of Makers and Researchers of Historical Instruments in Oxford. Marco found me on the list of members and sent me a message requesting some information from St.Petersburg Museum of Music Instruments. The message was written in a flawless archaic Russian. Since then our personal friendship developed.

Marco created one of the most famous schools of violin making in the world: La Scuola Civica di Liuteria del Commune di Milano. He was one of the organizers of the school of violin repair and restoration near Ferrara, and one of the organizers of IROR - Istituto per la Ricerca Organologica e Restauro in Milan. He was a president of Triennale - the violin making competition in Cremona for some ten years. He is an author of countless publications, and an organizer of competitions, symposiums in Italy and worldwide.
