In 2020, Cremona in America made the decision to rename ANDREA rosin CECILIA™.
The same trusted formulas now come in newly designed packaging with the new logo and the new name CECILIA™.
CECILIA Rosin series are now available worldwide. The formulas and the making process for SOLO, A Piacere and Sanctus remain the same. The Signature Formula is the newest addition to this premium rosin collection with the "Liquid Form Blending Method."
Andrea Rosin is now Cecilia Rosin.
I have been trying out your new “Signature Formula” from your CECILIA Rosin collection and I really love it.
It is strong but not too grainy creating a full and rich sound. It also lasts longer so I don’t have to rosin my bow as often.
I have tried at least 30 different brands of rosins over the years, but CECILIA Signature is my favorite.
Signature Formula is the new flagship formula of CECILIA Rosin Collection which provides a unique bowing sensation when in contact with the string and a clearly defined reaction.
This rosin is the most significant new development for the most demanding musicians that works well with a small amount on a wide range of repertoire. It helps the bow to create rich, full and expressive tones without excessive bite.
Solo is a long time popular formula with strong grip that gives a very stable bowing sensation. The formula focuses on providing maximum projection as well as clear articulation.
It is also forgiving under high bow pressure on the strings without the sound cracking.
A Piacere is similar to SOLO in terms of providing clear articulation, but it has slightly less projection power, aiming for more blending aspects in sound.
The tone is relatively warmer and rounder than the SOLO, and it goes particularly well with soft bows.
Sanctus is developed to provided more possibilities in the sound of stringed instruments. It takes a highly delicate process to combine two rosin formulas into a single cake of rosin. The appearance of the rosin is truly unique and beautiful.
The outer ring formula gives smooth bowing experience with a focused sound on the strings, and the softer center formula kicks in when the player demands more power and gutsiness from their instrument.
This new essential device is a simple and effective solution to enhance the quality of your daily stringed instrument playing experience. It is designed to be conveniently attached to the bottom of the CECILIA rosin after each use.

Rosin Q & A #4: Before you question your rosin...
- ANDREA is now CECILIA -
From the establishment back in 2009 until 2020, Cremona in America produced over 250,000 cakes of handmade rosin.
Starting in 2020, all premium rosins from Cremona in America are made under the name CECILIA™.
CECILIA is the patron saint of musicians as well as the name of my beloved mother who passed away in 2019.
This new era of CECILIA rosin from CiA is a tribute to my mother’s loving life and celebrates another decade of CiA with musicians all over the world. Cremona in America will continue to produce the world's finest premium rosins under new name CECILIA.
Cremona in America is aware that it will take a period of time before the new CECILIA rosin replaces the previous ANDREA rosin entirely on the worldwide market. Cremona in America will continue to look after everyone who purchases rosins made by Cremona in America under the ANDREA brand name for as long as it stays on the market.
