Lorenzo Cassi was born in Borgonovo Val Tidone, in the province of Piacenza on June 6th, 1974. He received his diploma at the International School of Violin Making in Cremona in 1997 under the guidance of Master Vincenzo Bissolotti, who taught him the classical Cremonese method of making. This method uses the internal mould as a basis for constructing instruments, and Lorenzo faithfully continues to follow this tradition.
After completing the violin school, he worked and collaborated in the workshop of Master Violin Maker Francesco Bissolotti where he specialized in costructing violins, violas and violoncellos. After four years in the Bissolotti workshop, he and his wife Kathrin opened in 2001 their own workshop in the heart of Cremona.
