At sixteen, as a self-taught man, he built his first violin and continued throughout his life building stringed instruments, despite being a trader by profession. He had contacts with Gotti and Pareschi, from whom he received advice and with whom he maintained a collaborative relationship. He also devoted himself to restoration. In 1972 he received a silver medal and a diploma at the Bagnacavallo Review and Competition. At the fifth Cremona lutherie competition in 1973, he participated with a violin and a cello.
In 1978 he built a string quartet, which corresponds to the photo.
