The violin history originated in Italy during the early 1500's. The violin was initially made closely resembling the rebec and fiddle which were both played in the medieval period as bowed stringed instruments. Additionally, the violin also reassembles the “lira da braccio” which is another bowed string instrument which originated in the Renaissance period. Andrea Amati is the person who designed and built the first stringed violin. He became a master instrument player in the year 1525. The original violin had a shorter neck that was very thick and not so angled. The strings of the violin are made from gut and the fingerboard was shorter.
