Among 250 violin makers in Cremona, Italy, Mancini was the best violin maker. His violins were used by many prominent violinists and they were played in many orchestras around the world.
Each violin made is grouped with more than 70 kinds of carefully selected and naturally seasoned wood. Every part of the violin made with the specially selected wood needs a special technique to adapt to different sounds made from the wood. Hence, it is impossible to get two violins to sound the same. For decades, violin makers have tried and failed making violins to sound like Mancini’s violins. This is due to Mancini’s unique way of perfecting the violins.
However, Mancini has retired from making his unique violins as decades of making violins took a toll on his back, causing him unable to continue the heritage. So, he turned his focus and time to his health and family.
Mancini has a beautiful granddaughter, Rosa. She had been playing Mancini’s violin since the age of 3. The violin was inherited for generations due to its unique sound. With Rosa’s born talent and inherited violin, she quickly rose into fame in the city and she had won many international competitions. Rosa dreamed to be a solo world-class violinist. She wanted to perform to the whole world.
One day, she received an invitation to perform at a concert. Rosa cried tears of joy as her dream was just a step away.
Unfortunately, catastrophe struck one month before Rosa’s concert. Their house had been robbed and Rosa’s inherited violin was gone without a trace. Rosa was depressed as the concert was her only chance to shine.
Mancini knew he was the only one who can help.
“Even though my back pain was enough to kill me, I had to make one last violin for her, because no one else can.”
So, he went to the ancient forest in the Dolomites Mountain, bearing the pain of his back and his age to hike 6000 feet above sea level, just to get the best wood to make Rosa’s violin.
Since then, Mancini worked day and night to make the violin. As his working hours increased, his back pain got worsen. Even though he tried his best to push through the pain, it slowed his progress to make Rosa’s violin.
Mancini knew he needed help to finish his masterpiece. So, he took medication, went for acupunctures, a chiropractor but none of them worked. He wanted to go for other therapies, but there was not enough time.
One day, Rosa was craving for some gelato. Soft-hearted Mancini then brought her for some traditional handmade gelato. Once they reached the shop, Mancini was shocked to see an 80-year-old sitting and churning the gelato. The old man was sitting on a weird-looking gel cushion working without showing any pain and fatigue. Mancini approached and asked him how he was not in pain.
He shared that his son is an osteopath physician, Dr. Rinaldi. He treated more than 100,000 patients with back pain and discovered the reason of back and neck pain origins from our butt.
“If the gluteal muscles are worn out, our body will experience pain. This is the reason why long sitting hours cause pain to our neck, back, and leg.”
Dr. Rinaldi did not have a lot of time to treat all his clients. So, he created the cushion for his clients to sit upright without a pain. It helps relieve pressure and pain from our gluteal muscles and fixes our body postures to prevent any pain throughout our spine.
Mancini had some doubts, but he still tried it as he did not want to let Rosa down.
The first day he used it, his back pain reduced to discomfort.
After 3 days his condition improved, and the pain was mostly gone.
After a week, he could sit 16 hours in his workshop with no problems.
“I feel like my back belongs to a 20-year-old. I’m just so thankful that I could give Rosa her violin in time now.”
6 days before Rosa’s performance, Mancini had finished the violin. Rosa was deeply touched Mancini even bought her extra time for practice.
During the concert, Rosa managed to pull the most beautiful sounds. The audience were moved to tears. She was given a standing ovation at the end of her performance.
Since then, Rosa and Mancini with his violins were recognized globally. Mancini’s violins were suddenly in a high demand. Many students and visitors came to Mancini to learn his art and to become his apprentice. Mancini was happy this beautiful heritage could be passed on.
