I started studying the double-bass when I was 12. The following year I couldn’t resist the temptation to open up my double-bass and see how the inside was made. Then I wasn’t able to close it, so I went to Gaetano Pareschi’s workshop: he was the violin-maker working in Ferrara in that period. I also had to take him the double-basses from the Conservatory to be repaired; so I often went to his workshop and I was fascinated by it…while he tore his hair out in desperation every time he saw me coming in! It was in these moments that I understood it would be my job one day.
When I was 19 I qualified with full marks at the Conservatory “Girolamo Frescobaldi” in Ferrara with Master Filippo Francesconi (1st double-bass at Bologna Comunale Theatre) and later I improved my tecnique with other Masters like Sergio Grazzini, Wolfgang Guttler, Ludwig Streicher…
