Celeste Farotti (1864–1928) worked as a self-taught violin maker in San Germano, Italy before moving in 1900 to Milan, home at the time to such prominent makers as Leandro Bisiach and the Antoniazzi brothers. Farotti established himself as a highly-skilled restorer and dealer of historic instruments as well as a celebrated violin maker. With the assistance of his brother Salvatore Farotti and his nephew Celestino Farotto (who reclaimed the original family surname), Farotti’s prolific and successful workshop produced both deceptively accurate copies and personal models to rank him as one of the leading makers of the 20th-century Piedmontese school. His work was awarded numerous gold medals at international exhibitions.
