About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

I graduated in viola at the Conservatory "A. Steffani "of Castelfranco Veneto with Maestro Luca Volpato, and the" Ecole Nationale de Musique et de Danse "in France with H. Suignard.

I worked as a viola player with various orchestras including: "The great Ecourie et la Chambre du Roy" directed by Jean-Claude Malgoire in Paris, Haydn Orchestra of Bolzano and Trento, Orchestra Filarmonica della Fenice, Orchestra of Padua and Veneto and many others.

The great passion of working wood brings me to start studying and perfezionandomi with various masters bow makers including Nelly Poidevin, Christian Barthe in France and Alfredo Clemente in Cologne.

My study, my passion and 'uprising with particular attention to the ancient arches, baroque, classical and transition, but also Renaissance arches reconstructed from photographic sources.

I built bows for many professional musicians, including:

Danilo Rossi, Carmignola, Viktoria Mullova, Mario Brunello, Isabelle Faust, Uto Ughi, Gilles Apap, Giovanni Angeleri, Sigurd Imsen, Renaud Capuçon, Gabriele Ragghianti, Alfredo Zamarra and many others.

He participates regularly in Mondomusica exhibitions of Cremona and made Musik Frankfurt and three editions have offered a bow to the winner of the National Contest of violin Biennale "Premio Citta 'di Vittorio Veneto", and the winner of the competition Postacchini of Fermo.

My arches are distinguished by the soft sound, stylish, as well as for their very good technical characteristics.

Even the 'arc, for a musician, and' an indispensable means of expressing the whole 'being of his person, thought, emotions, I more' deep ... music.
