CLICK HEREHe is called “the man of the Stradivarius”.Imagine a world of strict protocols for delivery and transfer. A world of extreme discretion and carefully planned diplomatic missions. This is the world where curators foresee every move and musicians play their instrument under watchful eyes. This is the world that recently focused on Matteo Fedeli and his project: “A Stradivarius for the People“. His mission is to tour the world playing the best Stradivarius violins ever made.Fedeli has been a councillor of the Academy String Concert Orchestra of Milan since 1990. His career as a concert soloist has taken him to the most prestigious Italian concert halls, among which we find the Scala of Milan, La Fenice in Venice, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Verona, the Assembly Hall in Geneva (United Nations), the Duomo in Milan, as well as in the country’s most enthralling churches and basilicas.He uses the world’s best violins when performing, among which we find “Duke of Alba” of 1719, and “Reynier, ex Napoleon III” of 1681. With this latter instrument, the Holy See invited him to perform in a concert in honor of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI in Pavia. Fedeli has been a guest on many famous television broadcasts on Italian television (RAI and Mediaset). His work is periodically reviewed in newspapers and magazines. His work is supported by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities. At present, he is working on the project “A Stradivarius for the People“, whose goal is to bring these magnificent violins to a wider audience for free.
