By Cecie Stainer

b. 1828 at Pianoro ; d. 1898. When still a child, his parents moved to Bazzano, where a certain Tadolini, of Modena, brother of the violin maker, remembering what he could of his brother's methods, used to make small violins to amuse young Raffaele; the latter soon became interested and endeavoured to assist. Raffaele gradually gained knowledge and experience, and in 1867 went to Bologna to work seriously for several years, finally opening his own workshop in the Palazzo Pepoli there.
