RICHMOND, BC - The $189,000 piano was flown to Vancouver yesterday in a crate that has sensors on it to ensure its safety. The "Marco Polo" is a bright red grand piano that is 7-feet long and has a beautiful work of art hand-painted under the lid. It is only on display for only two days before being delivered to the family that ordered it.
The piano was custom made in Italy by Fazioli - a company known for its meticulous attention to detail. Made by hand and requiring over 3 years of man hours, the rare Italian instruments are considered to be the 'crème-de-la-crème' of pianos.
The "Marco Polo" Edition piano was made in honour of the special relationship that has long existed between Italian and Chinese people. The Chinese-Canadian buyer and her daughter travelled to Italy to tour the piano factory and meet the founder himself – Paolo Fazioli.
The rare piece is being shown for only 2 days at Showcase Pianos, the new piano store in Richmond's Aberdeen Centre. Visitors are welcome to take photos.
#3480 – 4151 Hazelbridge Way
