The younger of the acclaimed Scarampella brothers of Brescia, Italy, Stefano Scarampella (1843–1925) studied violin making with his father Paolo (1803–1870) and his brother Giuseppe (1832–1902) before moving to Mantua in 1886. Considered among the finest late 19th and early 20th century Italian makers, the brothers were widely copied by other makers—numerous instruments attributed to them bear false labels with the famous Scarampella name. In 1918, requiring assistance due to physical challenges resulting from arthritis, Stefano engaged Gaetano Gadda (1900–1956) as an apprentice, and the two makes collaborated to produce many high-quality instruments. Stefano Scarampella’s instruments are highly sought after by professional players and collectors.
