I am indebted to Giovanni Intelisano for the wonderful book he produced, Mozzani: Un liutaio e la sua arte. The majority of the images and information I have found come from this book.
Thanks also to: Roberto Regazzi, who has graciously allowed the inclusion of his remarkable collection of photos from the estate of Claudio Gamberini.
Alan Greenwood, publisher of Vintage Guitar Magazine, Michael Wright, author of Guitar Stories Vol II, for permission to use instrument photos from their publications.
Robert Coldwell, who has made rare material from the Etude magazine available on his web site., various other miscellaneous web pages whose url addresses I have lost track of (here's one).
John Monteleone, James Westbrook, Michael Wright
