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.

This website is made not only to show my production but also to tell you stories about my experience in the world of ancient bows and to give, if possible, a startpoint for your own studies. Please feel free to contact me for any question or discussion.
