Rome
Rome, as the centre of the Catholic Church, was important for the patronage of the arts in the 15th and 16th centuries. It did not, however, play so significant a role in early instrument manufacture and, while there are isolated examples of instruments made there, evidence for the establishment of regular commercial workshops comes only in the late sixteenth century, the most notable being that of Carlo Plato.
