Wondering who invented the piano? Well, piano’s invention is credited to Bartolomeo Cristofori,  who lived in Italy during the 17th-18th century.  Employed by the Grand Prince of Tuscany, Ferdinando de’ Medici,  Cristofori was the keeper of instruments, an expert harpsichord maker, who had refined knowledge about the stringed keyboard instruments. While there’s little clarity on how piano was first constructed, it is believed that Cristofori created his first piece somewhere from 1698-1700. In fact, three of his pianos from the 1720s still survive today. Cristofori, while designing the piano, named it ‘Fortepiano,’  later called ‘Pianoforte,’ which was later shortened to Piano.
