Paolo Coriani began his career with a five-year apprenticeship (1975-1980) at the Massetti workshop in Modena (a workshop created by the two brothers Primo and Romolo Massetti in 1922). In 1984, Paolo Coriani opened his own workshop where he built guitars and hurdy-gurdies. Besides acquiring traditional Spanish guitar-making techniques, he became interested in the most advanced and innovative instrument building methods of the time. (Friederich, Schneider/Kasha, Kohno...). During his frequent trips to Paris he made friends with Christian Aubin and the discovery of Aubin's Torres 1867 - FE23 (restored by Bouchet who removed the tornavoz) was a decisive influence on his own work.


This amazing guitar by Paolo Coriani is inspired by Manuel Ramirez. The aesthetic is breathtakingly beautiful, the woods are gorgeous and the lutherie work is remarkable.


The restoration of historical instruments has enabled Paolo Coriani to acquire a perfect knowledge and understanding of the Spanish tradition. It shows in the remarkable beauty of this instrument’s sound. Its musicality is the soul and spirit of the distinctive sensitivity and charm of the great guitars built in this tradition. This instrument has a deep singing voice, uniquely poetic, as well as great musical expressiveness and beauty.
