Roberto Montagna | Lutist
Only unique pieces
A journey that began in 2007, starting alongside an expert carpenter, and then continuing with Maestro Fabio Chiari, each creation is made with passion in the smallest details.
Over the years, you realize that each tool has its own identity and is unique in its kind. The strings, the wood and the finishes give the violin a soul that will harmonize the sounds of the violinist.
In the laboratory violins, violas and cellos are born using original models of the great violin makers of the Venetian and Tuscan past such as Domenico Montagnana, Santo Serafino, G.B. Gabrielli and the Carcassi family to name a few, interpreting their style. In his laboratory, ribecas, lutes and alleys are also taken up from frescoes, paintings and iconography from the Middle Ages.
The woods he uses for his instruments are: pseudoplatanus maple, Italian country maple, Val di Fiemme spruce, which he prefers to chop personally when possible.
