As a violin Maker, Francesco Piasentini combines Passion with Research. Where Passion stands for fascination for wood and ancient craftmanship, and Research stands for interest on new technologies for investigation on musical instruments.
I create according to the rhythm of my hands. From wood choice to the final acoustic set-up, each step is driven by ancient gestures. Care on details and on the general vision makes each instrument unique. A certification of each construction step can be provided.
The Studio offers acoustic set-ups, repairs and restoration services for bowed stringed instruments. As a long-serving restorer, I believe that being up-to-date is fundamental. I regularly attend meetings and conferences on the subject, and I use MicroCT for planning restoration works.
