Paolo ed Ubaldo Brandoni
The company “Fratelli Bandoni” manufactured this unique instrument in 1976 as a publicity stunt for the international music trade fair in Frankfurt. Made of wood and fiberglass, it allows the viewer to “peep” inside the accordion to look at the intricate construction. With bellows fitted, the instrument functions perfectly. Today Paolo has retired from active business but is still connected to the world of the accordion: he is one of the custodians of the Museum, alongside Fabio Petromilli, Antonio Franzoso and Maurizio Pomposini.
