Fazioli Pianos History

Paolo Fazioli crafting a piano by hand

Hand-built in Italy, Fazioli Pianos is renowned for being one of the best piano brands in the industry. Their crisp, sparkling tone shines as each note is played. The Fazioli Piano Company was founded by pianist Paolo Fazioli. Paolo was born in Rome in 1944 into a family of furniture makers. From a very early age, he demonstrated a gift for music and a keen interest in the piano. In 1981, the Fazioli Piano Company was founded.

Paolo Fazioli incorporates the most advanced piano technology into his work, making them modern musical works of art. With only 140 pianos produced each year, Fazioli personally inspects each instrument before it leaves the factory.

As the premiere piano of choice for many of the world’s most prestigious pianists, including Herbie Hancock and Angela Hewitt, Fazioli pianos rank among the best in the world today, which is why Ellis Piano is proud to carry these magnificent instruments.
