Musical instruments increasingly identifies itself as a market with clear outlines, in which enthusiasts have the chance of coming into contact with antique pieces, characterised by a particular artisanal care.
The auction is thus an appointment and point of reference for musicians, luthiers, restorers and enthusiasts who show a preference especially for strings.
