An ancient trade

Leather tanning

In Florence, Santa Croce has been the historic leather processing district since the thirteenth century. Here, thanks to the efforts of the Gori family and the initiative of the Franciscans, in a calm, Renaissance setting the craftsmen of the Scuola del Cuoio (School of Leather) work under the wise aegis of Tommaso Melani and Laura Gori. The bags that are produced in this workshop are unique because they are created in a privileged place.


In the Tuscan capital even the art of bespoke footwear has ancient, famous origins. Unique and personalised shoes, created according to rules that are unlikely to be replaced by the new ideas of fashionistas.


In Milan houses and courtyards hide wonderful workshops where the finest creations, full of flair and the typical good taste of Milan, are made. Accessories of all kinds and footwear are created by passionate and skilled hands, sometimes using precious leathers that require unique craftsmanship.


Leather processing is a historical tradition also in Emilia Romagna, particularly in Modena, a city founded on a river. Here, in the Middle Ages, there were several tanneries right in the historical centre, where you can still find skilled craftsmen who create elegant accessories, with the timeless allure of handmade objects.


Personalised shoes, the real bespoke, in Bologna. An art that requires many delicate steps and that is not only high-quality craftsmanship, but also taste and sensitivity, indispensable for understanding the needs and desires of each customer.


If you are looking for well-made footwear other important addresses can be found in Rome. Here you will find famous shops, a regular destination for celebrities both from the world of politics and that of entertainment, where each step of the process is done entirely by hand, starting from wooden shapes set to the personal measurements of the exclusive clientele.
