Violin

As evidenced in letters and inventories, music played a central role in the Querini Stampalia family.

There is mention of Zuanne's, Francesco's son's, lute as early as the sixteenth century. There are some notes about violin and dance lessons for the children dating to the eighteenth century, and from the same period references to spinet study and a minuets book recorded during family visits to the countryside. In the 1800s Alvise Querini was a member of the Philharmonic Academy of Bologna.

The small yet significant instrument collection from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries includes a viola, two violins, two oboes, and a transverse flute.

Most remarkable are the seventeenth-century violin belonging to Martinus Kaiser, considered the founder of the Venetian luthiers, and two eighteenth-century bows signed by Carlo Tononi, of which there are just three copies in the world. 

Eugenio Da Venezia's donation in 1992 made possible the acquisition of a fortepiano from the first half of the nineteenth century.

The collection of musical manuscripts, rich in late seventeenth-century compositions in fine bindings, are of particular interest, some of which are exhibited in the Museum together with the musical instruments.
