The Amati family of violin makers worked in Cremona in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, establishing the renowned "Cremoneser School". The best known member was Niccolo Amati (1596-1684), the teacher of Guarneri and Stradivari {see planets (19185) and (19189), respectively}. The Amatis created a type of violin that is still effective today. (M 42677)
