Celebrated Italian violin maker Sesto Rocchi (1909-1991) studied with Gaetano Sgarabotto at the Violin Making School in Parma, Italy, then with Leandro Bisiach in Milan. After relocating to Germany to work for Michael Strobl in Berlin, Rocchi returned briefly to Milan to work at the famous Monzino violin shop, before settling in his home town of San Polo D'Enza near Reggio Emilia to begin his own business. After serving in World War II, Rocchi resumed his violin making career, becoming very prolific after 1949. Rocchi's numerous awards include 15 gold medals received for violins entered into international competitions, including the Santa Cecilia Academy competition in Rome in 1956, and the Quartet Making Competition in Li├Ęge, Belgium in 1960. He is the subject of the book "A Life for Violin Making" written by Gianfranco Boretti in 1994.
