  • Nicolò Gagliano (active. ca. 1730s – 1787 in Naples), although there is some discussion about the exact dates) (also known as Nicolo, Nicola or Nicolaus Gagliano - also sometimes known as Nicolò I, to differentiate him from Nicolò II, his grandson), was an Italian violin-maker, the eldest son of Alessandro Gagliano. He made many admirable instruments, often imitated. Some have been mistaken for those of Stradivari. Nicolò was a more prolific maker than his brother Gennaro (Januarius). Nicolò and Gennaro are considered the greatest luthiers in the Gagliano family and the pinnacle of Neapolitan violin-making. Although Nicolò's work is not always entirely consistent in quality, it often shows great distinction. His instruments have bold and well-proportioned archings, with the instrument scrolls having a distinctive elongated pegbox and small tight spiral. He often placed a small label with a religious dedication inside his instruments. Nicolò Gagliano had four sons, all makers — Ferdinando, Giuseppe (Joseph), Antonio, and Giovanni. Giuseppe's three sons Raffaele, Antonio and Nicolò (II) were also violin makers and carried the family's violin-making tradition into the middle of the 19th century.

  • Nicolo Gagliano (Napels) was een Italiaans vioolbouwer die floreerde in de periode van ongeveer 1740 en 1780. Als leerling werkte Gagliano onder beroemde vioolbouwers zoals Stradivarius en Nicolo Amati. Gagliano heeft in zijn leven een bijzonder groot aantal prachtige violen gemaakt. Zijn instrumenten werden vaak geïmiteerd, en zijn ook vaak - ten onrechte - aan Stradivarius toegewezen. Het is bekend dat Gagliano labels in zijn instrumenten plakte met teksten als "Nicolaii Gagliano fecit / in Napoli 1711" of "Nicolaus Gagliano filius / Alexandri fecit Neap. 1732". Nicolo Gagliano kwam uit een geslacht van vioolbouwers. Hij was de oudste zoon van Alessandro Gagliano, die ook vioolbouwer was. Ook zijn broer Gennaro en zijn zoon Fernando werkten als vioolbouwer.
