Fazioli grand pianos are produced since 1981 in Sacile – north-east Italy. This region is famous for woodworking since ages.
Fazioli differs from the other brands in many aspects. What is easy to notice is its Italian name. What more, the probation of the company lasts a little more than 30 years. That makes it so unique.
What else is worth mentioning is that the longest grand piano on the piano market came out from the Paolo Fazioli factory. They only produce grand pianos. Fazioli offers 16 models. 10 special and 6 serial.
The company is active since 1981 which is relatively a short period of time among other piano brands.
Fazioli is not only European. It is Italian. The consequence of that is the name of it sounds Italian. Most brands have German names after its founders.
Fazioli produces the longest grands on the piano market F308 – 308cm long.

"To Paolo Fazioli
With so much regard, affection and infinite gratefulness for the pianos

Paolo Fazioli comes from a carpenter family. Since his early childhood he showed musical talent and he had a special interest in pianos. In 1980, four prototypes of grands appeared. F183, F156, F228 and F278. The numbers defining the particular model are also their length in cm. Official establishment of the company dates on January in 1981. Four prototype models were introduced to press and the audience at the exhibition in Mediolan in the same year. A month after establishing, Fazioli presented their first offer at the Musikmesse fair in Frankfurt.
Providing the F278 model to Teatro Comunale di Monfalcone resulted in long-term cooperation. Many famous pianists performed there with this instrument. In 1986 the Fazioli factory launched the longest piano in the market – F308. It is named after its length, as most of the grands are. One year later, the prototype of this model was used by a French pianist François Joël Thioller to perform a Tchaikovsky piano concert. In 1987, the Fazioli offer was completed by the middle size F212 model. At the end of the year, in collaboration with the R & D Zanussi Centre, the factory has improved all six models, which now constitute a full range of Fazioli brand models. The number of instruments produced annually varies between 120 and 130.
