Natale Novelli was born in Milan in 1908 and died in Codogno, Italy in 1981. He studied with his uncle, Giuseppe Pedrazzini, one of the most important makers of the modern Milanese school in the early 20th century. Novelli's instruments include copies of models by Cremonese makers, as well as a personal model by Pedrazzini. They are highly regarded for their craftsmanship and tone quality.
