I make new instruments in pure Italian style. Mostly violins, violas and cellos.
I use models which take after from the old Cremonese and Venetian masters.
I built instruments which have a fine new look because I’ m not particulary pleased with all those things which display a fake old patina or artificial wearness.
So I leave the “joy” to consume their instruments to the other violin makers and I assign the task of practising up to wear their fingers ( and also the instrument) to my affectionate customers 🙂 .
