In 1985 Ivan Stanojlovic, the founder of Siwa & Figli accordions, started his accordion manufacturing company in Belgrade,Yugoslavia. This was a very exciting time for the talented young accordionist and craftsman. The company soon gained recognitition among professional musicians and accordion enthusiasts in Eastern Europe. It was remarkable that SIWA accordions had the distinct quality of Italian made instruments while producing a powerful tone with instant response required by Balkan folk music. The company worked in close collaboration with music schools and sponsored national accordion competitions and festivals. "The First accordion of Serbia", was a popular annual competition exclusively organized by SIWA and open to competitors from all over the world.
In the 1990s Ivan Stanojlovic made many trips to Italy in the pursuit of the best quality materials and assemblies for his accordions. Soon it became clear that there could be no better place to craft accordions than the town of Castelfidardo in Italy, the Accordion capital of the World. In 2005, SIWA was reborn in Castelfidardo under the name "SIWA & FIGLI di Stanojlovic Ivan". In 2007, the company established a strategic collaboration with the USA based Accordion Gallery. Each SIWA & FIGLI accordion is entirely hand made in Italy with the best quality materials. Crafted to the high quality standards of the 1960's and 70's these new accordions will charm you with power and tonal richness combined with stylish design and classic beauty.
