I was born in Sondrio on February, 5th 1970, in a family of musicians. When I was 8, I started to play the violin and, since then I’ve been attracted and fascinated by this instrument and consequently by lutherie and its secrets.
That’s the reason why, at 14, I enrolled in the International School of Lutherie “A. Stradivari”, where I graduated in 1988 gaining full marks.
Immediately after the diploma, I integrated in Master Nolli’s workshop where I learned all the tricks of the trade.
As I finished my internship in 1992, I opened my own workshop at Via Bella Rocca14, in the centre of Cremona. Here, by practicing constantly, I’ve improved and perfected my skills, in particular as for the construction of the classical quartet (violin, viola, cello).
I’ve also made some Baroque instruments, such as a pochette (directly inspired by Stradivari’s models) and violas d’amore.
