In order to safeguard the instrument makers’ work, the Consortium of Violinmakers has created, in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce and the Craft Associations, the “Cremona Liuteria” trademark.
The “Cremona Liuteria” trademark guarantees that the certified instrument is handmade by a Cremonese professional master instrument maker. The Consortium of Violinmakers maintains a database of the instruments sold with the “Cremona Liuteria” trademark; this permits a constant check on the authenticity of the instruments.
The trademark is a fundamental step for the safeguarding of Cremonese instruments from the danger of forgery; it brings transparency to the market and security for purchasers.
A few steps from the Cathedral, in the very central Piazza Stradivari, is to be found the seat of the Consortium of Violinmakers, where Cremonese instruments with the “Cremona Liuteria” trademark may be admired and played. The showroom, open throughout the year, presents a wide range of bowed instruments, accessories and specialized publications.
