Vincenzo Sannino was a self-taught luthier from Naples who later moved to Rome to continue his career. He was amongst the first to look beyond local traditions for inspiration, experimenting with styles across different regions of Italy and northern Europe. Nevertheless, Vincenzo Sannino still demonstrated an unmistakable talent for making in the Neapolitan style, his copies of older Neapolitan makers being remarkably close to the originals.
Known for his incredibly creative and artistic style, Vincenzo Sannino had a highly successful career and his instruments are very popular even today. Many dealers, violinists and collectors hold a Vincenzo Sannino violin in high regard, particularly his work from the early 1900s.
