Since I was a child I have had a passion for music, starting to play the piano at the age of six. I studied saxophone and electric bass, then I attended a course for Sound Engineering Technician, and for two years I played the double bass at the Music School of Fiesole. Finally, I dedicated myself to the study of contemporary composition with the master Andrea Portera, obtaining recognitions, executions and publications of my works.

In 2013 I enrolled in the School of Violin Making – Bottega di Parma, and under the guidance of Maestro Desiderio Quercetani I learned in Parma the techniques and skills of the Italian violin making tradition, making two violins, a cello and a viola.

Since 2015 I started my business in Florence, my town.
With the collaboration of Daniele Lauria we organized and created the new space, inaugurated in June 2017.

I participated in the exhibition “Artigianato e Palazzo” in Florence, editions 2016 and 2017, winning the prize for best craftsman chosen by the public; and an international festival such as “Virtuoso and Belcanto” in Lucca, where one of my instruments was selected as the first prize in the Viola competition.

I have been all occasions for meeting, growth and comparison with craftsmen and colleagues, musicians and high-level professionals, one of all Guy Braunstein.

I have sold my instruments in Italy, Europe and the United States. I received opinions and feedback from colleagues and musicians from all over the world, but especially from the Florentine territory: Orchestra del Maggio Musicale, Regional Orchestra Toscana and Scuola di Musica di Fiesole.

 

Since 2018 I have acquired the skills and techniques for the construction and repair of bows: first by occasionally frequenting the maestro Giovanni Cavazzoli, and then dedicating myself and deepening the craft with the maestro Adriano Massari, learning the profession of bowmaker to be able to make restorations, rehairing, set-up and construction of bows according to the Cremonese school of maestro Lucchi.
