Where can I see the old instruments online?

Thanks to the internet, we can all take a close look at the classic old Italian instruments.   This wasn't so easy in the past.

Detailed pictures of classical Italian instruments abound on the web.    Some are only published for a time, for example instruments up for auction.  Others are in permanent collections.   Some images can be seen for free, while others sources charge a fee for access.

Here's a quick guide to great instruments on the web:
