Dario Vettori


Dario II began practicing violin craftsmanship early on, learning the trade from his family's workshop in Italy. At the age of eighteen, he joined his father's workshop and later enrolled at the Associazione Liutaria Italiana Professionisti in 2001 to further his education. Dario II also gained extensive experience working in violin-making workshops in the United States, including those in New York, Washington DC, and Texas. He follows the same models used in his father's workshop to construct his instruments, utilizing Bosnian and local maple wood, as well as the last remaining supplies from his grandfather. In addition to the traditional spruce from the Val di Fiemme, he occasionally uses wood that originates from 17th-century trees, as determined by analyses conducted at the University of Tuscia in Viterbo. Dario II is an accomplished musician who performs in several chamber groups, including the Anonimo Fiorentino Orchestra, the Desiderio da Settignano Orchestra, and the Giovanile del Veneto Orchestra, with which he has toured abroad.
