The Laterna is a variant of the barrel piano that was very popular in Greece in the late 19th and early 20th century. Very few of those old instruments can still be found today, while there are a few makers that are reviving this part of Greek tradition by building them anew.
I have always wondered how a laterna would blend with a big concert-size amplifier. This design was part of a project from a few years ago that never came to life.
