I was born in Cremona in 1976, the home of lute–making art since 16th century.

It is a city rich in traditions and old craft workshops where technique, skills and studies have been handed down from father to son. It is the Cremona of Antonio Stradivari and Andrea Amati.

My true calling has always been to become a Master Luthier, so I attended The International School of Violin-making “Antonio Stradivari” – which hosts students from all over the world – where I got a full professional training in this art.

I graduated in 1994 with the help of my mentor Master Giorgio Scolari and during the following three years I dedicated myself to the improvement of my techniques in violin making, following the classical Cremona method in the workshop of Master Marco Nolli.

After that, I participated in several contests in Baveno, Bagnacavallo and Moscow, receiving Distinctions and Recognitions; acknowledgements that are fundamental in this profession if you want your craftsmanship acknowledged both in Italy and abroad.
