[...] I was actually looking for a violin for myself and I came across on Sofia's video on Instagram.
She posts a lot of video on how she makes her instruments, and I got so interested and fascinated by all her videos. So I contacted her through Instagram.

It was amazing: she shipped the violin from USA to Singapore.

We trusted each other and we make it happen: finally I got this instrument, named “Forget me not” [“Non ti scordar di me” in Italian].
The moment I received it, I started playing it and I like it a lot.

This instrument has got what I was looking for: the sound is warm, the instrument is very responsive and the harmonics are amazing.
Every time I have question about my violin, Sofia is always there to answer my questions and she doesn’t hesitate to reply me.

Now we have become very good friends, even though we haven’t met each other physically before.
Her videos actually inspired me into violinmaking itself.
So when my son started learning the violin, I decided to be part of his learning journey.
I hope to see Sofia and I hope more and more musicians get to play her instruments.
This is the story I would like to share, between Sofia, “Forget me not” and…me

Hi! My name is Mishael and I am holding in my hands a violin made by Sofia.

This violin is called Fracasso, and it was made in the middle of the pandemic in 2020.

I'm really grateful to be playing this instruments, it's a real honor and privilege.
[...] I managed to enroll in Indiana University pre-collegiate String Academy: it was there than I realized my pressing need for an instrument that could take me to a higher level of playing.

And over the course of 2 years I searched in places all over the United States and I didn't really find an instrument that could successfully do that.
So it came around to the summer 2020 and I still hand't find an instrument and time was running out for me to find one before my school started.

Then my teacher Mimi Zweig got in touch with me and about this violinmaker who had come from Italy and was stranded in Indianapolis due to the pandemic.

That turned out to be Sofia and the violin she made turned out to be Fracasso.

This violin was really wonderful from the first time that I picked it up and played it even I was just tuning the strings.
Just testing the violin and going back and forth I realized that this was most certainly the one.
I haven't changed my mind over the last 2 years: the instruments does everything I wanted to do, and it performs so loud.

At one point I actually played this in orchestra rehearsal and I decided to see how loud it could play...it easily out sounded the entire section without any problems!

The sound of this violin can really pack a punch!
Along with having raw power it's also really delicate.
It can play pieces such as "Salute d'amour" by Elgar and with immense clarity.

It's an experience...almost a religion one if I might say!

Dear Sofia,
my name is Zino Bogachek, I'm a violinist of the Washington National Opera (USA).

Respectfully, Zino Bogachek In november 2017 I bought a magnificent violin made by you, called Adriatico.

The violin is truly beautiful in every aspect, it has a rich and resonating sound and it has been my concert companion in many occasions!

Hi Sofia, I feel so honored to own one of your violins.

I'm going to bring it back home later today.

I guess it's all about fate.
I took the violin randomly to test some bows.
We Hence I took off from work on last Thursday to try it out for fun.

And I never expect my teachers to approve it within 2-3 mins of trying it.

The Violin plays an important part in creating a great violinist.
Beyond skills and techniques, a good violin will allow you to produce tones you never thought were possible.

A good violin will allow you to reach beyond your potential.
That is exactly what my violin, Ospedaletto has allowed me to do. 

I first laid eyes on Ospedaletto in late 2019 when I was 11 years old and looking for a full size violin.
After trying a few other violins from the Vettori family, Sofia’s Ospedaletto turned out to be the perfect fit for my frame at that time. 

Despite it being slightly smaller compared to other full size violins, it does not lack clarity nor brilliance, and best yet, it allows for almost effortless projection.

The tone is crystal clear and focused. The focused tone makes articulation easier.

Ospedaletto produces a brilliant, clear, clean and yet rich sound. To me brilliance is synonymous with sparkling. A brilliant quality is very important particularly in the upper registers, this is where Ospedaletto’s strength shines. 

To me, Ospedaletto is a great violin and I truly appreciate Sofia Vettori’s craftsmanship.

Sofia, I am so happy to see you and your farther in the little films on Facebook.

It is very nice to see how you work together to make a wonderful piece of art.
What a nice surprise to enter your atelier in 2008 and I was immediately taken by the wonderful cherry wood cello.

A very warm and singing voice. After so many years this cello is my favorite cello because of its tonal quality and visual beauty.

It is something magic you put in your instruments.
The sound has a freshness and is, rich and full.
It has a depth normally found in very old instruments.

I feel very grateful and lucky to have met you and your family, and now my twin sons also want to play the cello.

Let’s keep in touch and I will follow you every day. Let’s talk in the near future about your last king Tarquinius Superbus.
