He made his first instrument at 14, an electric guitar for his friend Jose "Pepe" Figueroa. He learned musical instrument construction and restoration with Felix T. Garzon at the University of Cordoba. At 20, he attended the the workshop of Stelvio Jersey, the official luthier of the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires.
Michelutti moved from Argentina to Italy in 1989 and enrolled in a three-year course at a Violin Making School, graduating under the tuition of Guerriero Spataffi. Meanwhile he opened his own shop, where he makes acoustic and electric instruments. In 2007 he taught for a year in art school Antiqua of Ariano Irpino, and the same year he moved to Cremona, where his son Francesco enrolled at the International School of Violin Making. In 2012, Francesco graduated as a violin maker under the guidance of Maestro Massimo Ardoli and now works with his father Carlos.
Michelutti continues to restore and build musical instruments and also devotes himself to the reproduction of historical instruments from 1600 to 1800.
