Workshop Battiloro

As the Handpan community has been growing exponentially in the latest years, we have felt the urge to share the knowledge we have gained during years of passionate exchange with fellow musicians, makers wellness specialists, and Handpan aficionados.

With the showrooms in Rome and Milan, Battiloro Handpan offers an unique point of reference in Italy for the community of musicians, wellness operators and enthusiasts, a community that grows year by year around Handpan music.
