He completed his studies in Cremona and graduated at the International School of violin making in ’86. In the following years, he deepened his studies in Brussels (Belgium), where he had the opportunity to specialize in restoration under the guidance of the master A. Jassogne. From 1994 until 1998 he was a student of the master Igor Moroder in Verona. The following year he returns to his native city where he actively devoted himself to the art of violin making, engaging in construction of string instruments, restorations, acoustic setup.
