From CBS News / 60 Minutes:

A visit to the birthplace of the violin -- a small town in Italy where Antonio Stradivari crafted his first instrument -- is to enter a different world, says correspondent Bill Whitaker, who traveled to Cremona, Italy, for this week's 60 Minutes story "The City of Music."

Hello Diane:

I caught  this last night. It had been recorded.  I sure loved it.  I also want to move there and make violins for the rest of my life... sigh...

It was a good special.  I was smiling because I was familiar with the History and the names and some of the facts.   :)  Itzak was charming too. 

I LOVE LOVE LOVED the special. 

Toni
