After a BA degree in Industrial Design at ISIA in Rome, she decided to move to Florence to learn the ancient and valuable art of shoe making. She always has been interested in design and making shoes . So she found out that Florence and Accademia Riaci would have been the perfect place for learning about.
She wants to gain knowledge about one of the most Italian famous and worldwide appreciated handcraft art. The craft of shoe making deserves to be handed down from one generation to another, to survive as a prestigious art.

国立デザイン大学ローマ校で工業デザインの文学士号を取得後、昔ながらの貴重な技術である靴制作を学ぶためにフィレンツェ行きを決意。ずっと靴デザインと靴制作に興味があったので、フィレンツェにあるアカデミアリアチへの入学を決めました。
イタリアで最も有名で、世界中から愛されている手作りの靴に関する知識を学びたいと思っています。イタリアの靴制作は後世に引き継がれていくべき技術であり、一流の芸術として残すべき大事な文化です。

During the first week we met Angelo, excellent artisan with a strong and great personality, and his always available and helpful assistants, Masa and Bernardo.

My classmates are from different nationality and age, nice and likeable. Such as Kamla, a freelancer who comes from Amsterdam. She is cool and really funny, with a strong passion for shoe making’s craft.

This week we took a simple introduction about shoe’s components, models and processing techniques.
Particularly we focused on décolleté model, working on camicia, tomaia and fodera. We started using tools and machineries, useful for the specifics handmade producing.

クラス1週目。素晴らしい芸術家そして人格者であるアンジェロ先生と、先生の有能なアシスタントであるマサとベルナルドに会いました。

クラスメイトたちは皆国籍も年齢も違いますが、とてもいい人たちばかりで好印象を持ちました。カルマというアムステルダムから来たフリーランサーはとても愉快な人で、靴制作への熱い情熱を持っています。

今週は靴のパーツやモデル、制作技術についての簡単なレクチャーを受けました。
