As the Expo approaches its close, the Italian Pavilion invites visitors to its ‘The Making Of’ room one final time to observe first-hand the tradition of exquisite craftsmanship that defines Made in Italy. From October 16 through October 31, eight master luthiers from the renowned Cremona Consortium will take turns handcrafting the world’s most celebrated violins. In addition to making the instruments, from time-to-time the masters will treat audiences to a live violin performance.
