In Northern Italy one of the most delicate crafts has survived both industrialization and globalization. The hand-built violin is a huge success for the city of Cremona, where past and present comes together in a lucrative niche business. Nordea Invest magazine travelled to the small town to find out how 30 pieces of wood can be worth millions.
We met the 32-year-old violin maker Yael Rosenblum.
