“PIANO” 1929
Silvio Scandalli ( Camerano)
This instrument represent the inventiveness of Silvio Scandalli. Silvio was the first constructor to mastermind an ergonomic shape for the accordion keyboard, a revolutionary innovation for the time, well received by musicians and markets alike. In 1946, thanks to his business sense, he had the intuition to join forces with Settimio Soprani as he created Farfisa (United Manufacturers of Italian Accordions). The creation of the new company was a brilliant move and contributed substantially to reviving the fortunes of the music sector which had suffered enormously due to World War II.
