One of the violins in the Stradivarius collection of the Palacio Real, Madrid, Spain

A Stradivarius is a string instrument (such as a violin) built by the 17th century Italian luthier Stradivari family (especially by Antonio Stradivari) that was famous for making them. Stradivarii are known for their high quality sound and ability to last a long time without tuning. Most of these instruments survive to this day, though few have been stolen. They are some of the best and most expensive instruments, and even each string instrument created has a name. So many people have wanted Stradivarii, and even one person has sold his house to buy one. Famous violinists, such as Midori Goto or Joshua Bell have Stradivarii.
