At his workshop, where valuable instruments of great historical and musical importance are restored, his working process involves modern methods of analysis, historical and iconographic research, as well as the constant application of techniques and materials contemporary with the instruments under restoration. Where possible, he bans the blower and prefers to apply the most appropriate automatic bellow lifter for each application.
The new instruments are always built in a single specimen and their design can be inspired by historical instruments or completely original, modelled on particular customer’s requirements. Materials and techniques are always faithful to the historical period or geographical area eventually inspiring the instrument in question. Though particularly specialized as a builder of house, practice and continuo organs, CARLI has built also larger-scale instruments such as S.Paolo in Olbia, sanctuary S. Maria della Speranza in Battipaglia (Salerno), and sanctuary S. Maria del Suffragio in Trento as well as in the parishes of S. Antonio in Casette di Legnago (Verona) and S. Martino in Cimego (Trento).
