Viola modello Gasparo da Salò
modello Domenico Montagnana
My customers describe me as a musician’s psycologist…
Every time a customer enters my workshop, I try my best to understand their professional requirements and, I can assure you, it’s not easy. But the challenge has fuelled my resolve to pursue this life-long dream. My goal is to allow, through my workmanship, each and every single piece of wood to express its full potential and become part of a unique instrument.

Finished writing in 2015, this is the book where I tell my story and recount all the events that have led me to become a lutist, my true self.

We first met in Perugia. I was there at an exhibition and his interest for my instrument was immediately evident. Today he plays a “Gasparo da Salò” viola.
Elisa and I are childhood friends and she was one of the first people to place faith in my abilities. Today she still plays a 2007 “Amati” viola I’ve made.
Marvellous cellist! I’m so proud of her. Today like the first day, she believes in my work. She plays a “Domenico Montagnana” cello.
Very professional and amiable person. Building a viola for him has been a challenge but a complete success! He plays a viola of mine in Parma’s Toscanini Orchestra.
