The son of Augustin Blanchi, he was born in Nice in 1871, and worked there until his death in 1941. His style was a mixture of Italian and French, having absorbed the influence of Pierre Pacherel in Turin, for whom his father worked. A prolific craftsman, he produced highly finished instruments of both the bowed and plucked families, and achieved gold medals in Milan and London.
