He has developed his interest for luthery ever since he was a child, following his father's footsteps, Davide, a renowned restorer and violin maker. In his training path, he kept classical italian tradition as a point of reference, laying the basis for developing his own identity as a violin maker.

His first cello gained the 6th place at the Cremona International "Triennale" Competition of Violin Making, in 2009, reaching large consensus from the jury. It received the same score from both luthiers and musicians, which appreciated its sound qualities and the executive techique.

In 2010, he received the second prize, a silver medal, in the cello section, at the 4th Lutherie National Contest of the town of Pisogne - Iseo Lake (Brescia), in the category of professional violinmakers (To see the cello, click here).
