an inlaid violin made by Vittorio Villa in 2005

Every decoration was inlaid in the wood (not painted)

Every detail was carved by hand. A mix of glue and ebony dust was put in the carved area.

This violin was strongly inspired by the original

Amati 1656 King Louis XIV keept at the Smithsonian Istitution in Washington
