Walter Chinaglia - who combines a degree in physics with a passion for early music - has been conducting specific research on historical organs for more than fifteen years. Based on medieval iconography, historical sources, treatises and following traditional building methods, he has reinterpreted the historical styles and thus created a range of finest quality instruments: the ORGANA collection.
