Di Mauro -1993 Antione Di Mauro was born in 1900 in Catagne, Italy, eventually settling with his family in Paris in 1932. Like a number of other Italian luthiers he was soon operating a successful guitar building shop, soon including two of his three young sons. The Di Mauros built many types of guitars and other stringed instruments but were especially renowned for their several distinct models based on the Maccaferri design. Antoine died in 1975 but the Di Mauro shop continued into the early 1990’s under the management of his son Joseph before closing for good in 1993. [Source and images courtesy of Retrofret]
