Who is BIZZI ?

The company, founded in 1975, has specialized from the very beginning in the production and restoration of historical musical instruments. After many years of rich experiences and considerable investments in structure, R&D and market surveys, BIZZI has developped a new idea that in the last few years has placed the company in a significant position among the most qualified manufacturers of historical keyboard instruments. Some prestigious initiatives, carried out in the years 70s and 80s, like the restoration of the Collections of the Museo del Teatro alla Scala in Milan and the Museo Correr in Venice, as well as the foundation of the Scuola di Liuteria of Milan, have allowed Bizzi to acquire the indispensable know-how and background for the launch a new project which would have required about ten years before being completed.

The goal was the establishment of a new company based on the same manufacturing principles of the greatest harpsichord makers of the past, and particularly the Ruckers dinasty, which is a unique example of high quality combined with great efficiency and incredible productivity. This project was started in the early 90s with the idea of reproducing the historical manufacturing system of the Ruckers family, based on a perfect organization of all the craftwork activities required by the harpsichord construction. While the respect of the fundamental design and making cryteria of the old Masters was essential, at the same time we decided not to give up all the advantages of a modern company, especially in regards to the possibilities given by the research in the fields of the sound, structure controls and metallurgic investigation. In other words, instead of just copying some of the beautiful Ruckers harpsichords, we found that the great challenge could rather be copying the perfect Ruckers manufacturing structure, aiming at getting as close as possible to some of their results. What came out after many years of hard work would be too long to explain but can probably be summarized in our production numbers, which have grown from 12 to 75 harpsichords per year, entirely built by our artisans and sold in 38 different Countries. One of the reasons of this rapid growth certainly lies in the efficiency of BIZZI system, which offers high quality, competitive prices, together with good delivery times. Bizzi is convinced that these three conditions, normally necessary for any good business, were also the strong points of the Ruckers system, if we want to explain how they could produce more than one instrument per week, in a town with a population of 80.000, without forgetting that this was nearly four centuries ago ! Bizzi also would like to add that this type of small and flexible structures is rather typical in Italy, where we count thousends of the so-called family companies, based on the principle of subcontracting accessories parts to specialized makers and well known for their good efficiency.

 

Just a quick note about Bizzi Clavicembali founder, Mr. Guido Bizzi: after achieving a PhD degree in mechanical engineering at Turin Polytechnic, he decided to concentrate on both the artistic and managerial fields. On the musical side he specialised in baroque singing and played different kinds of renaissance instruments, mainly manufactured by himself. His renaissance ensemble had a short but interesting concert career in Italy and abroad, achieving good reviews from world-renowned critics. As an entrepreneur, he met in the early 70s the person who would become his best friend and founded together a company manufacturing wire drawing plants for the production of steel wires and cables. The firm is still among the leading companies worldwide in this field of activity. His profound knowledge of the process of wire drawing, including the so called music wire, together with the corresponding artistic and entrepreneurial experience, led him to decide to leave his former industrial activity and concentrate in the fascinating project of reproducing the Ruckers manufacturing system. His wife Luisa plays a fundamental role in the management of the firm; she has experience as job consultant and was managing director in an important carpentry firm. Their sons, Vittorio and Lorenzo, although still students, already make a significant contribution to the running of the company.

Construction Principles

Italy is a Country with extraordinary traditions in Art and Handicraft represented today by thousands of small firms highly specialised in their own fields. From among this intriguing milieu we have selected more than 30 handicraft firms and in many years of exciting work together, they have understood all our technical and artistic needs. Therefore, from sand casting of bronze to hand carved legs or all various styles of decoration, we have managed to obtain extraordinary quality from people who are still handing down traditional techniques from one generation to another. By working according to these principles we can always acquire materials with the best natural seasoning and the highest possible quality workmanship. Of course, the very manufacture of the harpsichord is always done in our workshop where we follow the principle of expertise: everyone of our harpsichord-makers works almost exclusively with the type of instrument he knows best. This principle of expertise enhances the highest professional abilities of each person, representing also one of the pillars on which our future development prospects are based.

Quality - Price Ratio

The ratio of quality to price undoubtedly accounts for our achievements and explains in part why more and more customers are choosing our instruments. Indeed, we can offer a quality suitable for the most demanding professionals at prices considerably less than those of the most qualified harpsichord makers.This is the result of a Ruckers-type manufacturing system. To all of those who are suspicious of prices which are apparently “too low”, we would ask to investigate the matter in detail. For example, by making a simple visit to us and to other makers, in order to understand what the manufacture of a harpsichord involves and thus discover the various advantages a firm like ours can offer in terms of quality, good prices and delivery times.

... A personal advice?

In the fascinating world of the harpsichord, the choice of your own instrument is an important step but very often also a difficult one due to the variety and very different prices offered by the market. How can you find your way? Since a harpsichord always reveal the background, the culture and the style of its maker, my first suggestion, for such an important decision, is not merely to investigate the catalogues, but try to understand what lies behind their beautiful pictures and get to know the people behind them and learn about their past history, way of working and future plans. Try to see the advantages and disadvantages between small manufacturers, who offer sometimes only better prices, and well established companies which offer the guarantee deriving from a solid and continuous experience. Remember that a chat, an e-mail or a phone call can reveal many things but don’t hesitate to take a trip, even a long one, to look with your eyes into this matter, in the deepest possible way. As far as we are concerned, we have always found that a deep knowledge of our customers has been a determining factor of our growth and an important source of enrichment for both them and us. Thus, we consider that understanding the needs of the harpsichord player is even more important than the sale itself.

Why BIZZI ?

Because Bizzi has re-introduced in harpsichord handcraft manufacturing the same historical construction principles which were used by the great masters of the past, and especially by the Ruckers family which, in the XVII century, was making more than one harpsichord per week. Because this system combines high craftsmanship and modern management and has enabled us to sell about 400 craft harpsichord in a few years, delivered into 34 Countries. For the style and good taste of many Italian artisans of great tradition that we have formed in many years of patient work. Because more and more often good harpsichordists and important institutions decide to purchase BIZZI instruments or use them in concert. For the best quality/price ratio in this market. For the good delivery times, the technical service and for all the attentions we are proud to offer to our clientelle. Because the size of our craftsmen entreprise allows us to do the necessary investments for studies and research on sound and structure stability. Because our harpsichords are the result of a high technical and management backgound, combined with an interesting artistic career and a deep experience in restoration of museums.

And, why not, because our customers very often become also good friends...
