Giulio Amato is a young luthier. He graduated from Milan’s Civic school of Lutherie, under the guidance of masters Stefano Gibertoni, Gabriele Negri and Lorenzo Rossi. Then, working in Rossi’s workshop, he specialized in modern instruments and replicas of ancient ones. In 2015 he opened his own workshop in the heart of Rome, in Campo de’ Fiori, an area renowned for its craft workshops. Today Giulio specializes in making and restoring classical string quartet instruments: violins, violas and cellos. Each one of his instruments is a unique artwork, entirely handmade: the master personally tends to each step of the crafting process, from selecting the materials to the making, from painting to fine tuning. Each year he attends important competitions and trade fairs.
