Daniele Scolari is a true Cremonese. He attended the Cremona International Violin Making School, where he was a pupil of Master Giobatta Morassi. He graduated in 1979, and since 1982 he has been working with his brother Giorgio.
The instruments which he makes are inspired by the classic Cremonese school of violin making, in particular models by Stradivari and Guarneri, picking only the highest quality materials. His instruments (violins, violas, and cellos) are appreciated in Italy and abroad, especially in Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States, for both his care in details and his personalized style along with his varnish which is of a brownish-orange color.
In 1984 he won the gold medal for the best varnish at the 'Bagnacavallo Competition', in 1986 a silver medal for one of his violins and in 1988 two bronze medals with a violin and a viola. He also took part in some of the 'Triennali Competitions' in Cremona, always receiving superior results. He was member of the jury at III° (2009) and VII° (2013) 'National Competition of Violin Making' in Pisogne (BS) and Mozzate (CO), organized by A.N.L.A.I. Association.
He is a teacher of “Manifacture and Varnishing” in Cremona’s International School of Violin Making since 1996.
In addition to violin making, he has always been fond of music with much experience in many fields, ranging from pop music to liturgical organ playing. He is also a director of a vocal and instrumental group, with which he continues to have as much spirit in searching new things and need for enrichment, as when he builds his instruments
