The Rivolta Family has been cutting and dealing with wood for a Century.
We are the fourth generation in our family business. We buy the best and most precious woods from all continents. We choose and cut the logs, and then the timber is dried with great care in our sawmill in Desio.
The quality and the variety of woods that we deal with allow us to select the most suitable material. Our great-grandfather began by selling carpentry wood. Tonewood is now our main activity; although we still supply sawn sizes for restoration, turnery, and handicraft objects. We cut to sizes that tradition requires and that our experience suggests. Our customers are both factories and instrument makers from all over the world and anyone else who shares the passion for wood. We deal with specific wood used in the making of stringed instruments: Spruce, Maple, Ebony but also Cypress and many others. Among those woods, Italian Spruce is our most important product, as the wood used in the Italian instrument making tradition has proven to be exceptional. Apart from standard production, we are always looking for wood used in the traditional lutherie such as Willow, Oppio, Poplar and European Boxwood. Take a look in the “NEWS” menu in order to have more information about this… You are most welcome to visit our “virtual sawmill” where you can find more information about how we work and our production. Hoping to meet you in person in the future in our “real” sawmill, we are at your disposal for any information you may need.
