I was very fortunate to visit Concertine Italia yesterday.  It is a very interesting place.  Every part of the instruments are made in the shop, except for the reeds and reed blocks (those are supplied by a nearby accordion factory).  The entire staff is just two full time people.  They have some vintage tools from the Stagi/Bastari factory but also use modern tools including a laser cutter, to produce their instruments.  There is also a part time woodworker who comes in to make the wood parts,
