How to use Cremona in a sentence
The instruments, known collectively as Cremonese violins after Cremona, the home of their makers, are some of the most sought-after objects on the planet.
A Cremona Violin is, to a rich amateur, a loadstone that is sure to attract the shining metal from the depths of his purse.
Like pictures, the Cremona Violins are real works of art, and like them also, were once to be had for trifling sums.
Cremona has lost its most famous names from among its citizens, and with them its most distinguished characteristic.
It is now about three centuries since there flourished at Cremona its first great violin maker.
It is not exactly so, but is still very different to the gradual swell on the other Cremona instruments.
