Italy —/,]>_ "Give me a man with the wonderful hands, ears and feeling for violins that Antonio Stradivari had. and 1 will show him how to make violins as good as the master's superb Instruments." Thus says Prof. Renzo Bacchetla, Cremona lawyer who thinks he has penetrated the secrets of the man who 200 years ago brought the violin to a state of perfection not sinre equalled. Bui. the genius' secret technique. Bacchetta said, can only be turned Into superlative violins by another genius. Bacchetta has already given the secrets to the Italian government "Antonio Stradivari School of violin making" here, and violins are being made according to what Bacchetta thinks were the master's methods. The Straivari School. is open to students of all nationalities. It presently has eight stutienis. One ol these is 18-year-old Adolph Primavera. whose father is a violin maker at Philadelphia. There are really three secrets according to Bacchetta's information: One Is the kind of varnish.

The 1 third is in jnH what order anri manner the 58 pieces that make up a violin were put together.
