Click on picture to see a gallery about harpsichord making in my workshop





   The workshop started in late 2003 by my passion for early keyboard instruments, at the beginning in collaboration with Gaetano Previtera. I'm determined to make instruments in observance of the handicraft tradition, without using prefabricated parts: my instruments are made entirely inside the workshop, from carvings to decorations, from hand hammered tune pins to mouldings; the jacks are made one by one in all their parts. For my harpsichords I only use first quality woods, as early harpsichord makers did. I'm a harpsichord performer, and this helps me a lot, since I know exactly what a performer requires from his own harpsichord, whether from a musical point of view, or a technical point of view.
