Contemporary Cremonese violin maker Maurizio Bissolotti (b. 1956) was born into a prolific family of luthiers. He learned the rudiments of his craft alongside his 3 violin-making brothers in the renowned workshop of their father, Francesco. In 1971, Maurizio enrolled in the Violin making School in Cremona where his father was a teacher. He completed the program in 1975 and resumed his work in the family shop. In the early 1980s, Maurizio spent time in Salzburg honing his skills in restoration and setup. He then returned to Cremona, where he has remained throughout his career. His work is highly admired by players and collectors around the world.
