An interesting observation by Steve Rosso of the Trio Violin Project (the CT scanning of dozens of Cremonese Violins), what he calls the "Amati Smile" referring to the cross-sectional shape of the violins back at the "c" bout. He observed that the middle and ends of the arch ramain pretty thick.

Here is the link to Steve's Blog and his discussion:http://www.trioviolinproject.com/steves-blog/
