Alessandro Ciciliati

Alessandro Ciciliati


Alessandro Ciciliati was born in 1959 in Ferrara, Italy. Having completed his studies in art and double-bass, he began learning the art of violin making and restoration in 1977, studying with Ivano Coratti for four years.

From 1984 to 1994 he took part in numerous national and international competitions, at which he was always awarded a prize. Alessandro Ciciliati favours the models of the Ferrarese school led by Ettore Soffriti, with whom he feels a strong connection.

His continued research in the field of acoustics has led to the development of a method of design that consistently results in a powerful, yet round, well-carrying sound.

As a result of the particular consideration taken in the choice of woods (which are stored for around 15 to 20 years), the attention to detail (scroll, purfling and f-holes) and the expressiveness of form and varnish, Ciciliati's instruments are highly valued by important orchestras and chamber music ensembles.

Pauline Hoffmann won first prize at the Jugend musiziert competition of Germany with her Ciciliati violin in 2016, category: violin solo.
