Bottega is the Italian name for workshop. It represents a place where things are made moving hands and brains.

In the bottega guitars are crafted listening to the materials, feeling them and understanding how they interact.

The idea is to use each material not bending to preconceptions but exploiting shapes and properties to achieve happiness.


Di Donato Guitars was established many years ago as a workshop of bowed instruments near Venice, Italy. Great passion for legendary Guitarists and the stifling rigidity in following the “Ancient Mith” of classical lutherie, brought the concept of new instruments free of every restriction without any limitation of shapes and materials, coupling wood with aluminum, which is already used for its tonal properties. Every single guitar is one of a kind in which every part fits with others, from pickups to knobs and is crafted to answer to the personal desires and needs of each guitarist.
