In 1982 a four-year professional training course started at
Hantverkets Folkhögskola in Leksand, Sweden.
There had been a shortage of professional violin makers/restorers in Sweden for a long time.
The most famous international schools in Cremona and Mittenwald (Italy and Germany) served as a model
for the school. With a view to strengthening the Italian tradition they managed to employ
Maestro di Liutaio Carlo Bergman from Helsinki. He had been trained in Cremona
during the Golden era around 1960, by some of the most famous and best known violin makers of that time.
In order to maintain the Italian stringed instruments trade,
keep its tradition, craftsmanship and artistic characteristic,
we started the association S.V.I.T. (Swedish Violin makers - Italian Tradition)
The association S.V.I.T. has been awarded with Ragnhild and
Einar Lundström's Craft's Scholarship for 1996,
for the sum of 25.000 :- , and the motive is:
'The members of S.V.I.T. have in a very concrete way shown
that it is possible to establish an unusual craft
with very highly set standards on craftmanship and business knowledge in our modern and varying industry.
The members have too, through participation in national and international exhibitions, shown that the quality
of their work keeps a high international standard and that they have gained confidence as repairers for a large
number of professional musicians and orchestras.' The foundation Hantverksfrämjandet through Jörgen Nilsson.
