Maker Background

Daniele Marni, born in 1995, approached the world of music at the age of ten by taking violin lessons with maestro Umberto Oliveti.

After graduating from high school, he starts violin-making training at the Civica Scuola di Liuteria in Milan. During his studies he learned the techniques of restoration of ancient and modern instruments and in 2017 he attended the bow restoration and maintenance course held by master Piero Cavalazzi. He graduated in 2018 in the ''Laboratory for the construction of string instruments'' under the guidance of the masters Lorenzo Rossi, Stefano Gibertoni and Michele Dobner.

He collaborated as an apprentice with the luthiers Mattia Riva (Varese) and Gino Sfarra (L'Aquila). He currently works in Milan where he opened his business, based in the Dergano district, near the M3 stop. He makes violins, violas, and cellos in his workshop, making them entirely by hand and taking inspiration from traditional Milanese and Cremonese models. He is also dedicated to the restoration of instruments and carries out set-up and fine-tuning according to the needs of each musician.

Maker Interview

Why did you start making instruments?

I have always had an aptitude for manual work. Since I was a child, I have combined my passion for building wooden models with studying the violin, and after my high school exam, I decided to enroll at the Milan violin-making school.

Why your instruments are so special?

I devote great attention to the aesthetics and acoustics of each instrument that I consider fundamental, adapting myself to the materials chosen.

What is your inspiration?

I use classic Cremonese or Milanese models of Stradivarian inspiration. The woods are the traditional essences used in lutherie, top-quality spruce and maple, seasoned and personally chosen.
