Paula Lazzarini was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. During her youth, she studied History at the University. She explains here:
“ at a certain point in my career I found a strong interest in objects and artifacts from the past which eventually led me to enroll in a Masters’ Program in Restoration and Conservation at the University of San Martin, Argentina. . My curiosity for woods and musical instruments gradually led me to work, first, in instruments repair and, later on, in making classical guitars, under the direction of Ricardo Louzao, who taught me the art of guitar making as well as the passion to disseminate the Spanish classical guitar. Since my early years in guitar making, I have always aimed for my own style and sound for my guitars.”
Paula made her first guitar in 2007. In 2016 she moved to Cremona, Italy where she opened her own guitar workshop. During her career, she visited and was influenced by European guitar makers from Italy, Holland, France … with whom she shared her passion for instrument making and restoration.
It is worth mentioning the brief stage he spent with the great master Daniel Friederich in Paris and more recently with guitar maker master Marín Montero in Granada, Spain.
An important moment in her career is the year 2021 when Paula entered the International Guitar-Making Competition in Granada and won the First Prize. It was a key moment for her excellent work and talent to be known all over the world and she started to be commissioned guitars, especially from the USA, China, and Japan.
“Guitar making is a long and dynamic process, whereby I not only transform and reshape the wood, but also my own passion for the instrument takes shape, in a ceaseless search for sound and, eventually, for the object that best represents me in every new guitar.”
