Catania had started working on mandolins, learning the ropes of his trade very early in life in Naples: he gleaned the secrets of the Neapolitan school of string instrument making and repair, and founded his own company in 1936. After the Second World War, the “Primaria Fabbrica di strumenti musicali a corda Carmelo Catania” recorded a sharp increase in business, peaking at 10,000 instruments sold a year, ranging from the professional to the beginner.
