Italian harpsichord

Italian harpsichord - Cembali Frezzato & Di Mattia

Artemisia Gentileschi - "Giuditta e la fantesca Abra"

"I liked the idea, maybe the blade of the sword cutting the lace. Sword and lace: two worlds so different but dangerously touching. Yes. It would have been a new thing, all mine, and it would not have belonged to an era in which women hid their abilities to submit to a man, even her husband. "

From "The Passion of Artemisia" by Susan Vreeland

German harpsichord

German harpsichord - Cembali Frezzato & Di Mattia

German school harpsichord with inscription Christian Zell 1728 Hamburg - 2 manuals. Extension FF - f3 (61 keys) - 8'8''4 '- Transposition 415 Hz / 440 Hz and Lute.

The keyboards are made of Makassar Ebony. The chromates in walnut with bone cover. The spruce soundboard, aged ten years and naturally. The sound runs along tracks of wooden matter. The decorations on the case and on the base are enriched by cabinet work.

The lines along the sides and the discontinuous stretches on the basement, represent the desire for freedom from conditioning and closures, which are often held prisoner. They are open lines, without rules and compromises. Harmony that evolves, which changes the way of understanding the daily "no". The points of suspension on the lid, evoke a suspended, uncertain living: a man who tries to reason his time despite the frenetic wear and tear of everyday life.

For us, a humanity that feels the predominant need to find within the heart, the resources to progress.

The sound and the harmony of form

The sound and the harmony of form - Cembali Frezzato & Di Mattia

"There is a resemblance between the artistic forms, the resemblance of the inner aspirations and the ideals. In our soul there is a crack which, if touched, resounds like a precious vase resurfaced from the depths of the earth. Make the atmosphere in which a spectator is immersed more engaging and visionary. These works prevent the soul from becoming vulgar and keep alive the tension as the key of a tuner holds out the strings of an instrument. Who is only a daughter of her time but will never become the mother of the future, is a sterile art. "

From "The spiritual in the art" of Wassily Kandinsky

Our in-depth study of the early 1900s evoked the pictorial expression of a great artist. The decorative element of this harpsichord translates social tensions that are completely similar to our time.
