The workshop was opened in 1998 by Paolo Sorgentone and Michele Mecatti combining different professional experiences acquired during the years in order to offer comprehensive assistance to string musicians.Our main activity is the making of string instruments, entirely constructed by us, using traditional methods and seasoned raw materials of the highest quality. This guarantees original work, recognizable for its personality, style and acoustics.

Beside this production there are also a certain number of instruments made by our apprentices, these are also entirely handmade under our guidance with our raw materials and are guaranteed by us. We offer assistance ranging from difficult restorations to the usual repairs, including bow maintenance and repair.

In setting up instuments, our aim is to prepare each instument to the particular specifications of each musician. Beside our own instruments we have other instruments of different qualities, periods and origins.

Care is the motto of our workshop.

Care for all our customers and their different needs. Even those with few economic possibilities, novice musicians, schools and institutions.

Care for ourselves, our workplace, our rhythms, our wages, our professional ambitions.

Care for our collaborators, especially young luthiers.

Care for the environment.

Oggi mettiamo a confronto due violini costruiti da un importante liutaio Toscano attivo a Firenze nella prima metà del ‘900: Fernando Ferroni.

Ferroni si avvicina alla liuteria da autodidatta in età già avanzata e si avvale dei consigli di Valentino De Zorzi, figura di grande riferimento della liuteria Toscana di fine ‘800 e primo ‘900.
