In the late 1600’s the finest instruments originated from three rural families whose workshops were side by side in the Italian village of Cremona. First were the Amatis, and outside their shop hung a sign: “The best violins in all Italy.” Not to be outdone, their next door neighbors, the family Guarnerius, hung a bolder sign proclaiming: ” The Best Violins in All The World!” At the end of the street was the workshop of Anton Stradivarius, and on its front door was a simple notice which read: ” The best violins on the block.”
