Birth of a passion...
Amazed by the stringed musical instruments since an early age, I reached the city of Cremona and I entered the International Violin Making School in 2000: I was 15.
During the 5 years of course I was trained in the making and the restoration of the string quartet and I took the degree of Master Violin Maker in 2005.
Then I had the lucky opportunity to enter the workshop of M. Alberto Giordano in Genova, a conservator of the violin of Paganini “Il Cannone”, where I had the chance to improve my skill working on high class instruments.
While in Genova I also took the opportunity to collaborate with master guitar maker Carlo Pierini, with which I improved my technique in the making and the restoration of guitars.
So after 10 years in Italy I came back to Bastia, Corse, where I opened my workshop in 2010.
Diploma of Master Luthier acquired under the aegis of Master Ezio Scarpini, at the IPIALL school (Instituto Professionale Internazionale per l'Artigianato Liutario and Legno).
Naissance d'une passion...
To new projects!
While making and restoring violins, cisters and guitars, I decided to specialize myself in guitars only.
Just after being back to my old region, “la Balagna” this project finally started and the first “Graziani Guitar” was ready to make its voice sing!
Since then I work to the creation of new models and the making of many guitars.
You are invited to visit my workshop in the center of the city of L’isula Rossa and see and try my instruments!
Alberto Giordano is Master Luthier in Genova, curator of Paganini's violin. He was my master from 2005 to 2010, and passed on his knowledge to me regarding the manufacture and restoration of Quartet's instruments.
