More than 35 years of experience in the sector, the Casiglia’s workshop has accumulated knowledge and skills that guarantee the perfect design and success of early keyboard instruments of high quality and prestige. This long journey has allowed us to refine and improve all craftsmanship skills and to offer unique instruments on the market. With a background of musical studies and training courses in Edinburgh on the construction of historical instruments, Ugo Casiglia opened his own laboratory in 1985 in Palermo. Today the laboratory is among the most renowned in the world thanks also to the presence of his son Claudio who joined in 2010.

Putting the utmost professionalism into every phase of the production of our instruments is a guarantee of excellent results, the important final regulation phases are often the most underestimated – our goal is to provide the performer with an instrument with the maximum dynamic and sound possibilities. All our instruments are made or restored in a philological way, we only use animal glues of the best quality and woods seasoned for more than 10 years in our storage rooms.
