Mondo Musica, Part One


As I mentioned Tuesday, I spent last weekend in Cremona, where we visited the city and Mondo Musica 2011. What's Mondo Musica you ask? It's where some of the best instrument makers in Europe (the world?) come to show their newest creations and best work. People come from all over to browse the pianos and string instruments on display.

The piano room featured the strangest booth of the day: a player-piano featuring a balding old man with a cape. Tommaso tried to ask him a question before we realized what was going on. In the end though we did learn one thing - there is no true Italian word for creepy; which it too bad because it would have come in handy at that moment.
