Luca Mandolini was born on February 24th, 1992 in Castiglione del Lago, Perugia. He has been passionate about sculpting wood since he was a child, when he used to carve his own toys and other kinds of objects.
Growing up he encounters another great passion: music. At first he approches Rock and Punk, but soon his interests move towards North-european and Russian folk music, as well as Irish and English folk music.
He begins his violin studies at the ‘‘Scuola di Musica VMS’’ in Perugia , where he gets passionate about the mystery of classic luthiery and decides to be part of it.
In 2016 he joins the ‘’Scuola di Liuteria Toscana Fernando Ferroni’’ where he becomes a student of Master Fabio Chiari, attending the violin making class. Graduated in 2018, he searches in his instruments a distinctive touch, combining tradition and originality.
