Paoletti Guitars – Quarrata – Italy

Just a few miles away from our facility in Tuscany, there is the birth place of Dante Alighieri, known as the father of the Italian language, was born in Florence in 1265, died and buried in Ravenna in 1321. Among the many poems and works, his epic poem, The Divine Comedy,  is split into three parts and traces a pilgrim’s journey through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven.

The basic structural component of The Divine Comedy is the canto. The poem consists of 100 cantos, which are grouped together into three sections, or canticles, Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.

The company pays homage to the past with a limited run of guitars celebrating Dante’s vision. In this 2021 only the 3 guitars are ready to shine and remember the Poet’s opera. A limited design, available on this models for this year only.
Mr.Paoletti, master builder and owner himself is taking care of every details, making these fine instruments from the centenarian woods selection, up to the end of the works.

Every Paoletti Guitars is 100% handcrafted in our facility, out of centenarian chestnut woods (for the body) from wine barrels no longer used to make wine, featuring other premium woods like Canadian Roasted maple, ebony, rosewood for the other parts on board.

PURGATORY – PURGATORIO /pur·ga·tò·rio/
