I saw my first Violano Virtuoso when I was 10 years old. Later, while in college studying Mechanical Engineering, I had the opportunity to repair a Violano that was owned by a collector who entrusted me with his (previously non-working) machine.
Over the years, I've had the pleasure of collecting and restoring several more, but the most enjoyable part of the journey has been meeting and building relationships with others who share my appreciation for these marvelous machines.
I often have machines, rolls, and related Violano parts or reference materials available for sale.
