This collection displays instruments produced between the 17th and 20th centuries. Most of the objects were donated by Emma Vecla, a singer from the beginning of the 20th century. It consists of string instruments such as violins, violas, viola d’amore, and cellos. In addition, other plucked and stroked string instruments are on display: guitars, barrel-organs and pianos. Part of the exhibition is dedicated to wind instruments: flutes, clarinets, oboes and English horns. Objects of great value are an Erard piano (1830 approx.), an Erard harp (1835) and a Giosuč Agati positive organ (1826). You can discover the making phases of a violin and observe the reconstruction of a lutemaker’s workshop from the 17th century.
