Stolen Italian Violins in Paris

Messaggio da claudio » martedì 21 marzo 2006, 22:47

On Saturday 18th March, while transfering from Paris Airport of Orly to the station of Antony,
on the Orlyval train, I was stolen of a double violin case made
by Riboni, light grey color, containing 2 violins and 5 bows.
We would be very grateful if you could forward this email with the photografs attachments to
