The luthier from Argentina

  • • Lucas’s workshop in Cremona is close to Stradivari’s home
  • • Every instrument he makes is an extension of himself
  • • He is particularly keen on making Baroque instruments

At the age of 21, Lucas Fabro decided to leave his native Buenos Aires, where he had a steady job and a loving family, and cross the Atlantic ocean in order to fulfil his dream of becoming a violin maker in the town of Stradivari. He settled down in Cremona, where he graduated from the Istituto di Istruzione Superiore Antonio Stradivari and was then trained by master violin maker Daniele Scolari. He opened his own workshop in 2018, and was soon appreciated by an international clientele for the quality of his production. Being a man of his generation, Lucas has a YouTube channel where he shares his craft with people all over the world. “In this way,” he explains, “musicians can know more about the instruments they play and everyone can explore this wonderful art.”
