The Maggini Foundation

The Foundation was established in 1991 under the name of the most famous luthier of the Brescian School: Giovanni Paolo Maggini (1581–1632).

The Maggini Foundation has many high-quality string instruments of the 17th, 18th, and 19th century at its disposal. They can all be rented out to relatively low rental fees for short or long periods of time.

These instruments present new worlds of sound and possibilities for young and gifted string musicians, which can play an integral role for their artistic development.

At the moment, our Foundation holds some 40 celli, 80 violins and 10 violas, among them are some baroque-instruments, which can be rented out to musicians for concerts, competitions, CD/DVD-recordings, radio and TV recordings or rehearsals for orchestras.
