Ancient piano dealer established by Giuseppe Passadori (Brescia, May the 20th 1893, November the 17th 1959). He started the activity when he was sixsteen, restoring his first piano under the expert guide of his uncle Guglielmo Borghetti, organist and piano teacher, son of an ancient spinets producer (one those spinets, dating back to late 700-early 800, is preserved in our offices). From that very first restoration, Giuseppe Passadori laid the foundation of a passion that was going to become his job and his life, and then the life and the job of his whole family.
