HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

I propose a 1.30 hour guided tour inside our artisanal shoe factory. During the visit I will explain and show all the essential steps of the shoe making process.
We will start with the sketch made on the mould, the realization of the paper pattern, the leather cutting on the upper shoe and finally the assembly of the shoe on the mould.
I will also show you the different kind of leather that I use for my shoes and of course the different working techniques that confer comfort and quality to a high end handicraft shoe.

SOME TIPS

In order to have the most enjoyable experience there is only one, but essential, requirement: you need to come here bringing with you all the enthusiasm and passion you have for Italy!

You will then try to plane with your own hands and I will finally held a demonstration of intaglio carving. If you already are passionate about that kind of works, you can bring your artifacts with you so that we can have some experimentation with them.
