Since 2001 he started working together with Stefano Zanderighi, a project that would eventually led to the birth of the Liuteria d’Insieme workshop in 2003. His work ischaracterised by great care in researching on original models and early building and painting methods. The instruments he builds are distinguished by their great fidelity to original models without losing sight of building details andcharacterised by a rich and dynamic sound.
