PIGINI STORY

PIGINI ACCORDIONS

AN ITALIAN SUCCESS HISTORY

For our faithful and passionate customers, the accordions built by us, are not just simply musical instruments.
They are history pieces of the Italian liuther’s shop, they are instruments of attractive passion, always on the move with the harmony of musical tones.
Our accordions are the means by which our musicians discover the power and the charm of the craftsmanship of our region, sharing it with people who represent and prove the Pigini experience.

Like many other Italian successful histories, Pigini started with a small dream and a lot of hard work.
Everything began on 6th June 1946, when Filippo Pigini registered the company “F.lli Pigini di Filippo” for the Chamber of commerce of Ancona.
They immediately shipped several samples by activating trade relations with USA, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Argentina, Egypt and Pakistan.
Right from the early days, Pigini has always supported the evolution of its instruments through radical changes and sophisticated restyling.
