We offer everyone the opportunity to attend lutherie classes or personal lessons in our workshop, over the course of the lessons an instrument chosen by the participant will be built which will remain their property.
The number of hours needed, and therefore the cost of the course, depends on the instrument you choose and the time needed for construction, which will take place under our supervision and using the equipment in our workshop.
In the course we will address historical and theoretical arguments connected to the instrument under construction and you will learn techniques for the realization of the entire instrument, for choosing woods and for painting and finishing.
For more information and details please contact us.

Inspired by a conservational approach, our work is distinguished by the high professionalism of the techniques used and the detailed clarity with which they are documented. Instruments that come to our laboratory to be restored are subject, before any intervention, to an early stage of photographic documentation and careful research work, in order to identify the correct methods of intervention and techniques to be used. During restoration, our goal is to preserve original parts of the instrument without losing any of the information they communicate to us about its author, its style and its construction techniques.
The possibility of re-use of the instrument, especially in the case of instruments of a certain historical importance, is carefully considered and, where possible pursued, where we try not to distort the historical material with too invasive interventions. Each phase of the restoration is well documented and an accurate final report is provided, accompanied by photographic material, which gives a complete and clear idea of the intervention performed, the techniques used and objectives.
Some examples of these reports are available to download in this section.
