Benjamin Molinaro

French | Based in Paris, France

Benjamin Molinaro is a French luthier based in Montreuil, France. After receiving training in Newark and gaining work experience in the United Kingdom and France, Molinaro spent a number of years working in Bernard Sabatier's workshop on Rue de Rome in Paris. During this period, Molinaro developed a novel approach to the craft of violin making, which led him to devote his career to the art full-time.

Benjamin draws inspiration from the exceptional works of the renowned Italian craftsmen, but he prides himself on defining his own unique style and designing his own models. Since 2019, he has operated his own workshop in Montreuil, a suburb of Paris, where he specializes in crafting violins, violas, and cellos.

One of Molinaro's recent works, a cello, was selected as a semi-finalist in the inaugural International Cello Competition held in Paris.
