Proietti was born in Rome in 1976. At the age of 21 he moved to Cremona where he began his training in the Construction, Maintenance and Restoration of the Classical Quartet's Strings. During his training he worked in Avignon with Katia Luis and Remì Bertaux and in Paris with Edwin Clemènt, where he learned the construction technique of the French arch.
