Giovanni Lazzaro

As pupil of internationally rewarded masters restorers such as Hans J. Nebel and Vahkn Nigogosian – both pupils of S. F. Sacconi at Rembert Wurlitzer Inc. in New York – Horacio Piniero (Director of Jaque Français Workshop in New York, U.S.A.), Kenneth Meyer and Yung Ching, Giovanni Lazzaro is constantly devoted to spread his deep willingness and experience accrued on restoration and set-up on important, ancient instruments through his vision of Liuthery, that he translates into his elitist production of fully hand-made creations.

After attending the International Violin Making School of Cremona graduating with full marks in 1985, he refined his knowledge working as apprentice during his studies at Riccardo Bergonzi workshop (Cremona, Italy) before, after, as external at Giancarlo Guicciardi workshop (Modena, Italy) and finally collaborating with Igor Moroder (Verona, Italy): mentors that he will never stop to thanks.
