On 14 September Cremona’s long-awaited Museo del Violino finally opens its doors. This map, made at the time of Andrea Amati’s death, gives a vivid impression of the streets and layout of the city, most of which remained unchanged until long after Stradivari died. All the great Cremonese makers lived at one time or another in the central part of the city. The coat of arms is that of the Spanish Royal House, which ruled Cremona throughout most of the classical period.
