Inspired by old world craftsmanship and the artistry of Italian design, Palatino takes its name from a central hill in Rome where ancient emperors built their palaces. It is from these origins that provide Palatino its passion for incredibly crafted and meticulously detailed musical instruments.
Since 1994, Palatino has been devoted to bringing together the beauty of tradition with the strength of contemporary technology to classic instruments for the world to enjoy.
The Anziano viola outfit features a beautiful design based on a classic Ferdinando Garimberti model. The viola features a lightweight body and is made with a tight grained select spruce top, highly flamed maple back and sides, and grade-A ebony fittings. The stunning brown satin finish is meticulously placed using a dry-water sand wax technique for a truly antique look. This viola is shop adjusted in the U.S. and includes a brazilwood bow with ebony frog and a featherweight suspension case. Palatinos line of string instruments include violins, violas, cellos and basses, most of which are hand-carved and offered in golden brown or oil varnish finishes. Palatino violins were the top selling student violins in 2003, signifying the brands strong commitment to the educational market.
