Marco Anedda ViolinMaker

Born in Cagliari, Marco Anedda spent his childhood in a small Sardinian town, Villaputzu, where he learnt to “play” with the wood he found in his father’s and grandfather’s woodwork shop.

He first approached to music by chance, following his instinct and he began to grow a passion for that wide world made of notes, instruments and musicians.

Graduated from high school, he undertook a difficult and twisting journey that led him to Monterchi, where nowadays he lives and gives birth to his instruments.

Having graduated from Gubbio violin making school, he trained as an apprentice with Sorgentone and Mecatti in Florence. However, willing to create his own instruments, in 2005 he began to work in Monterchi, within a vast amphitheatre of mountain and forest, in the Tuscan Valtiberina.

Here, far from the frantic atmosphere of the big cities, Marco takes care of his instruments, trying to give to each of them a peculiar and unique identity. He also repairs, and set up and upkeeps maintenance on violins, violas and cellos. At the moment, his instrument are being played and appreciated by professional musicians all over the world. As Marco often likes to say: his instruments travel more than he does himself.

Since 2008, given to the growing demand, he has been working with Sergio Di Zenobio’s collaboration, and he is now able to conceive and create his instruments with a greater concentration and dedication. His violins, violas, and cellos can be assembled both with modern and antique (baroque and classical) schemes.

When he is not busy in his workshop, you can find him playing with his daughter Adele, a budding violinist, or possibly with his cello, of which he is an enthusiastic amateur.
