Erminio Travi was a Milanese luthier who made guitars and mandolins in the early part of the 20th century. Erminio Travi was the uncle and first teacher of the luthier Carlo Raspagni. In the 1930s his workshop was in Vignate, Milan. He made guitars in the "old style" of the early twentieth century, very decorated but not suited for the typical 20th century classical player. For this reason he never gained the international recognition he deserved, although well known locally. He worked tirelessly and with passion until he was ninety.
