Fusion School is a school of lutherie. It's located in Roma, via R. Grazioli Lante 62.
Fusion School was born in 2002 in luthier Franco Di Filippo's studio.
Luthier Leonardo Petrucci started collaborating with
Fusion School and teaching in 2007,
creating with Di Filippo a new kind of course called "Full Immersion", truely one-of-a-kind in its genre.
Through the years, the two luthiers have built with their students more than 400 instruments, counting electric, acoustic and
classic guitars, electric and acoustic basses, baritone, gypsy and battente guitars, mandolins, mandolas, mandocellos.
After attending the School's classes, some of the students have started a professional activity on their own, opening lutherie
shops and laboratories.
Classes in Rome
Fusion School classes are held in Rome throughout the year, excluding August. In its main location the participants' individual
needs are met by tayloring specific kinds of courses.
Every student is continually followed by one of the two master luthiers.

What is a full immersion course?
Thanks to "Full Immersion" teaching, Fusion School may claim to be the only School of Lutherie in the world able to bring a student
to build a string instrument, from electric solid-body to fully acoustic, in just 7 days work.
By Full Immersion technique the student, starting from scratch and lacking any direct experience of lutherie, in 7 days is made able
to build a great instrument, excellent by finishing and character, using blank, not pre-cut or already shaped wood.
It may sound impossible, but it has been made viable by thoroughly programming all building stages through the 7 working days and by
carefully evaluating waiting time in gluing and finishing stages.
Afterwards, the student will be able to repeat all the building techniques on his own, building his second instrument without the
help of a master luthier.
Attending a Fusion School course it's possible to build classical, acoustic and electric guitars, acoustic and electric basses,
brazilian-style flat-back mandolins, mandolas, mandocellos, ukulele.
