He also has a very interesting ocarina making guide. http://ocarina.at/bauanleitung.htm
It's in German, but the images also say much.

According to it he builds his ocarinas with a core, not a mold. Do you know if this is also the typical way for traditional Italian ocarinas?

This is how Donati made his ocarinas and it is a method today used by several ocarina makers, like Posch and Pacchioni. However, in Budrio, this method was abandoned in favour of press moulding with transversal assembly, invented by Vicinelli, which is faster and more consistent.

Il metodo di assemblamento del corpo dipende dal numero di ocarine che devi fare, se non hai la necessità di produrne più di due al giorno, a che serve avere presse meccaniche che possono produrre più di cento ocarine al giorno?
Sarebbe un attrezzatura utilissima solamente per finalità industriali, che oltretutto congelerebbe la possibilità di fare varianti di cameratura e volume delle camere o qualsiasi sperimentazione, oltre a limitare la produzione a pochi modelli (forse ad un quintetto di ocarine).
