Luiz, born in 1964 in the Brazilian city of Curitiba, embarked on his academic journey studying Mechanics, with a specific focus on technical drawing and projects. His love for the arts saw him graduating in 1985 from the State School of Music and Fine Arts with a Bachelor's degree, majoring in Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture.
For a decade, Luiz honed his craft as a professional artist. His desire to create and restore beautiful works took a new path in 2001, when he launched his own workshop. Here, alongside his talented team, Luiz has been creating and restoring violins, earning worldwide recognition for their exceptional work.
Building upon his successful career, Luiz, in 2018, alongside his associates, unveiled the latest expansion of his workshop – a new headquarters located in Cremona. His journey from a passionate art student to a globally respected artist and violin maker is a testament to his dedication and artistic prowess.
