Чем вы займетесь

I'm going to guide you in the process of hand making a violin bridge through a series of simple steps. It is possible to chose between the contemporary modern model and a traditional baroque pattern, taken directly from a Stradivari model.
You will carve a piece of seasoned maple using some of the main violin maker tools, in a friendly and creative enviroment.
This is also going to be an occasion for you to know more about this admirable craft, since 2012 Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity (UNESCO 7.COM). You will be able to see the violin in different steps of the working process, dicroveing the five hundred years old method we still use to make each unique instrument.

I started out my journey in violin making fourteen years ago and since then it has been my primal passion and focus in life. I've been studying in Cremona four years at the International Violin making School, alongside working in a local workshop. Afterwards I practiced in one of the most renowed workshop worldwide, in London.
Now I run my own business here in the Modena countryside, in an historical XVII century house, once home and bottega of the violin maker Alberto Guerra.
Approaching this craft has been a great joy for me and I'm shure it could be a wonder also for other people, perhaps you!

Где вы побываете

The activity will take place in my violin-making workshop: you'll stay in the enviroment where my creations take form, with all the raw wood, tools, resins and some of the relics from the Guerra's workshop, the violin maker who used to be here in the first half of the '900.
I forgot to mention that the house is immerse in the lush greenery of the surrounding park.

Luca and his traditional violin making workshop is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He is a gracious host, patient and knowledgeable teacher, and charming person. His workshop is located in the Italian countryside and the tidy, organized space sets you in tune mentally for the detailed work in making your own violin bridge. In addition to crafting beautiful violins, Luca has a gentle personality, witty humor, and friendly warmth that makes you feel at home. Having just become engaged a few days prior to my fiancé, who is an orchestral (and choral) conductor, this shared experience is one of my favorite memories that we have from this trip. Thank you Luca, for offering your workshop on this platform so ordinary visitors like myself can craft a unique souvenir and go through a process of the art of instrument-making that has been refined across hundreds of years.

From the moment he picked us up at Modena train station, Luca made us feel welcome. He is a master luthier, having studied in Cremona, the epicenter of great violin makers (Stradivarius included), with a passion for detail that is evident in every aspect of his work. He makes his own varnish, his own pigment. He excitedly and patiently explains the chemistry and physics behind each step of the building process. He is a true artist; only making 2-3 violins a year; this is no cheap mass production shop. Each instrument he builds is a masterpiece. Having no experience in woodworking ourselves, Luca was friendly and encouraging, making us feel comfortable using new tools and good about our work throughout the whole class. His family’s history on the area is fascinating, particularly the matriarch who was a falconress. The workshop is in the oldest home in the town and is a beautiful space to spend time in (especially being greeted by his friendly dog and cats). This experience was a highlight of our trip throughout Northern Italy, and I couldn’t recommend him any higher. You will have a great time with Luca, and come home with unique stories and a beautiful violin bridge you made with you own hands!

In alcune ore Luca è riuscito a trasmettermi l'amore per il suo mestiere, rendendomi partecipe di questa meravigliosa tradizione. È stato veramente un piacere passare una giornata in quella splendida villa nella campagna modenese a scoprire la storia ed i metodi di quest'arte. Un'esperienza che consiglio a chiunque.

Absolutely wonderful time shared with Luca and his family. He was so kind and patient with the children and he is deeply knowledgeable. You can’t go wrong. Thanks, Luca! His English is very good. We will definitely share time with him next time we are in Modena.

There is a cat, funnily shy. She lives pretty much outside, but maybe you'll have the honour to meet her..
