Am glad to see this old thread revived. I stumbled across some video clips featuring Vignoni earlier this month and was startled by how much I liked the sound of this previously-unknown-to-me brand. Of course from a clip, can't tell how old the insturments were. Fingers crossed that the sound hasn't changed!

Their website still features the 2017 catalog, and the Via Giuseppe Garibaldi address - in general shows no signs of recent updates except for the 'copyright 2021' notice at the bottom.

It may well be that you'd get more current information from asking Allodi, than from trying to contact Vignoni directly. (Those of you who are in easy reach of London, that is.)

I bought a new Vignoni Celtic double octave from Allodi about 12 months ago. On the back of the instrument it states “made in Italy 100%”. I’m very pleased with the instrument and it is a joy to play.
Congratulations. The Vignoni Celtic is a cool accordion. I played one a number of years ago - it was compact and sounded great. I remember the aesthetics - it was polished black celluloid and had the most remarkable decorations with green vines entwining Alpine flowers and colourful sparkling crystals. Naturally, the accordion also had mother-of-pearl effect keys and buttons. It reminded me of the artwork on an antique Romany caravan. This accordion was the musette version, so the sound and style made for a perfect match. However, I expect the double octave version may be more classic and elegant - which is also superb. Enjoy!

A friend of mine commissioned an accordion from Vignoni with Emilio Allodi as go between and was very happy with deal a couple of years back..
I do know old man Vignoni was in hospital at the time as I was present when Emilio was telephoning him to arrange specs..
Hope that helps
