Andrea Di Maio

Andrea Di Maio is a skilled constructor of Arpicordi (harpsichords) and antique keyboard instruments. Each instrument is created entirely by the author, from design to decoration and, even if made following the European traditions, is never an exact copy of a precise historical instrument. To understand the care and professionalism that Di Maio puts into his work, just take a look at his workshop: the entire space has a system for monitoring the internal atmosphere, maintaining it at a constant temperature and humidity level - key factors for the success of the instrument.
