Matteo is the local master Luthier, one of the few that remains in Bergamo since it is an ancient trade.

Having finished his studies in construction and restoration of bowed instruments in Cremona, he worked all over the world for a while and then in 2008 he decided to open his own business on Via Pignolo where he was born and raised.

It is here that he skilfully makes and restores bowed and string instruments.

The master Luthier collaborates with some schools and nurseries by giving talks on where his passion developed from and what it means to be involved with an ancient craft trade.
