For sale: a Technics SX PR54 digital piano, eight years old, and absolutely top of the line at the time of purchase (close to $5,000). On Monday, January 27, the famous Italian piano maker Paolo Fazioli will visit Vancouver for just over 24 hours and will visit the extremely rare 24k Gold Leaf Fazioli piano. The $535,000 piano is on display (and available for sale) at the finest furniture store in Vancouver: Bruce Lloyd Home. Paolo Fazioli’s experience with pianos and knowledge of engineering led him to believe that he could combine these two worlds to make a better piano. In 1978 he started gathering a team of specialist technicians, including mathematicians, acoustic physicists, wood technologists, piano makers and pianists to “define the process for the construction of a conceptually new piano”.
In the mid-1980’s word started spreading around the world about an Italian who had just created his own piano. In 2011 there was an earthquake of great proportions in the piano world when Juilliard – one of the world’s leading schools of music – that famously only ever bought Steinways for the previous 80 years, broke away from tradition to purchase a Fazioli piano.
Fazioli pianos are still totally made by hand in Italy and are considered to be the finest piano available today.


Fazioli pianos start at $100,000 and each one takes approximately 3,000 man-hours to make – that’s about double the price and three times the amount of time than a Steinway.
Matching chairs and a cabinet was made for it, and a painting was commissioned for the music room. Located along the seawall in Coal Harbour, Bruce Lloyd Home is one of the few places in North America you can purchase the highly sought after FENDI CASA furniture, as well as the Georgio line – all of which is hand made in Italy. Not only can Vancouverites experience a Fazioli for themselves at one the two Showcase Pianos stores are the local dealers for the beautiful instruments, but they can also hear a professional perform on one for FREE! In 1969 he earned his university diploma as an engineer at the University of Rome, and in 1971 he earned his degree as a pianist at the G. Paolo approached his family with the idea, and they allowed him to use a section of the furniture factory for his project.
The pianos really gained momentum in the 1990’s when great pianists like Herbie Hancock, Angela Hewitt, and Louis Lortie started performing on Fazioli pianos. When people meet Paolo Fazioli, they are often surprised at how nice and humble he is, especially after hearing what he has achieved, and what a high standard he places on himself and his workers.


At the heart of each Fazioli piano lies the soundboard, which is carved from the Val-Di-Fiemme forest in Northern Italy – the same trees harvested by Antonio Stradivari for his famous violins. One is just over 10-feet long, making it the largest piano to ever come to Vancouver – and is beautifully decorated with Red Elm brier, Satinwood, Mother of Pearl, as well as some 24k Gold Leaf.
The piano is on display (and available for sale) at the finest furniture store in Vancouver: Bruce Lloyd Home.
It is very fitting then, that the 24k Gold Leaf Fazioli – priced at a mere $535,000 – is placed in such incredibly beautiful surroundings. Both the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel and the Shangri-La Hotel have custom made Fazioli pianos in their lobbies where bands and soloists are hired to play every evening. Compare at $2,600 -$3,000 USD (plus taxes and delivery) on the internet for used comparable pianos.
