He opened his own workshop in 1984 after completing his studies and after some years apprenticeship and working in some great italian andf rench masters' workshops. Mainly he makes guitars and hurdy-gurdys following the classical models or his own inspiration. He combines a careful choise of the woods with an attentive study of the forms and a careful violinmaking method to reach the equilibrium and the sound that musicians are looking for.
These are a few example of the latest constructive techniques: studies and theories on wood acoustic, humidity control, carbon fibres components, vacum gluing.
