Alessandro Peiretti

Maker of fine violins and cellos

Alessandro Peiretti was born in Turin, Italy, where he has developed his interest for luthery ever since he was a child, following his father's footsteps, Davide, a renowned restorer and violin maker. In his training path, he kept classical italian tradition as a point of reference, laying the basis for developing his own identity as a violin maker. In the same time, he has made a career as a cellist, performing on a regular basis with the Symphonic Orchestra "Giuseppe Verdi" in Milan since 2002. Therefore, his own proficiency in playing the cello constitutes a privileged approach on violin making, as regards either construction or acoustic research. He presented his instruments at several important competition, such as the Cremona International "Triennale" Competition, where his first cello was awarded 6th place in 2009, and the 4th Pisogne National Competition, where he won a silver medal, in 2010. In April 2013, he delivered a lecture called at "Mani per suonare, mani per costruire", as a violinmaker and cellist as well. The event was coordinated by Fondazione Antonio Stradivari of Cremona and concluded the "Costruttori di Armonie" festival at Auditorium di Milano. His last cello received the Gold Medal at the 7th ANLAI Violin Making Competition in 2013.
