Recognized as the most important Milanese maker of his time, Giovanni Grancino began working independently at an early age and subsequently developed a bold, distinctive style based on his interpretations of the work by the Amatis. The results were a collection of strong and elegant instruments. His individualist style, reflected in his clean cut and gracefully rounded scrolls and the broad wings of his F holes, is seen to have influenced the work of other Milanese makers, most notably Carlo Giuseppe Testore. The carefully constructed compilation of parts allows Grancino’s instruments to create a clear and balanced tone highly admired among both collectors and musicians.
