Born in Lucerne in 1961, in the seventies he moved with his family to Lugano, where he completed his musical studies at the Conservatory, graduating in classical guitar and Schulmusik 1. In 2013 he met Eros S. who began to guide him in the construction of his first acoustic guitar, a friendship was born and with it continuous exchanges related to the construction of guitars. Today Beniamino, amateur luthier and music teacher, is working on his 13th creation. A dream has come true!
I have always had love for wood, but I would never have dared to build a musical instrument ... the whole process seemed too complex to me ... then I met Eros ... Usually a luthier tends not to reveal any secrets or construction techniques developed over the long years of practice, the evolution periods are surprisingly long… but Eros, after a week of reflection, agreed to assist me in building my first guitar. The feeling and mood when I first strung my first guitar was heavenly. This sensation is what I am looking for and that pushes me to build other instruments, to enjoy whenever I hear the first sounds and to understand if the choices and / or changes made have highlighted positive or negative acoustic changes.
