Historically informed bows


Historically informed performers


I write these pages mainly to share my experience in the world of ancient bows, and provide you -if possible- a starting point for your own studies and insights.
Moreover, I am also happy to show you my production of historically informed bows.

Please feel free to contact me for any question or discussion,

May I introduce myself ?

I was born in Genoa in 1960. My interest in luthiery dates back to 1978 and after many years of professional violinmaking, since 1995 I focused my attention on baroque bows.

Alongside with my activity of professional bowmaker, as indipendent scholar I carry on my research about original bows in cooperation with Italian and European institutions.

With the goal to issue a support for all the musicians who want to perform “historically informed”, in the last years I started sharing the results of my studies holding lectures and classes.
