Nationality: Italy
Course: Shoe Making
Program: One-Year Course
Period: Jan. 16,2017- July 31,2017


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。

Shoe Making 10-One Year Course 2017 (Student1)

I finished my first pair of shoes! (almost finished)
The Blake stitching is completed, and I spent these last days, working at the heels. It takes time to make them, because they are made by layers created and refined singly.This weekend some friends and relatives came to visit me. So I spent all my days off going around without any time to rest. I was dead tired, but for sure happy.

私の最初の一足が仕上がりました! (ほとんど仕上がりました)
ブレイクステッチが完成し、私はここ数日、かかとを作るのに時間を費やしました。かかとは一層ずつ作っては磨く作業を重ねながら作るので、時間がかかります。今週末は、友人や親戚が私を訪ねてくれました。 そのため休む時間が無く、すべての休日を彼らと過ごすことに費やしました。死ぬほど疲れていますが、とても幸せです。

Once the stitching is finished, it is totally hidden inside the sole.

ステッチが終わったら、ソールの内側に完全に隠れています。

I love to listen to live music in the bars. On Friday I have been lucky, because this blues – rock group was amazing!

私はバーで生の音楽を聞くのが大好きです。
金曜日、私はラッキーでした。なぜなら、このブルース・ロック・グループはすばらしかったからです!

This is why I said I was dead tired but happy.

これが、私が死ぬほど疲れていても幸せだと言った理由です。
