Camillo Mandelli was a well-respected Northern Italian maker of the early 20th Century. He was born in Calco (Como) and studied with Bisiach and Antonazzi (in whose style he worked). His round backed double basses were particularly successful. Mandelli worked from 1889 to 1920 in Buenos Aires where this fine example was made. The rich red-brown varnish, classic Italian styling and robust sound make this instrument a gem.
