Hello, this is Accademia Riaci, Florence Italy.
The city of Florence vaunts an ancient tradition in leather art, especially in the shoemaking field.
The aim of our One-Year course in Shoe Making, starting on 7th September 2015, is to teach how to create handmade shoes from zero, following the artisanal rules of the “Made in Italy”. The learning process includes explanations and manual exercise on how: measuring feet, making patterns, cutting, treating leather, sewing, finishing, etc. with the purpose of creating high-quality shoes.
Please visit our shoemaking gallery to see our students’ works:
