On 28th May, 2006, I stepped my feet on board the Intercity train at Milano Centrale Stazione scheduled to leave for Cremona at 8:15 a.m., in search of the finest instruments that showed their sound to me through my hi-fi. Those instruments were played by the maestro, Salvatore Accardo, in one of my all time favorite CDs of violin music with the title I violini di Cremona.
At around 9:35 a.m., I have just stepped out of the train station.
I can't show you how the violins look like, though, as photography was not allowed. Therefore I show you this violin maker on Piazza del Comune which is just nearby to the palace.
