Nationality: Italy
Course: Shoe Making
Program: Avanzata Course
Period: Sep. 4, 2017 – Apr. 28, 2018


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 12-One Year Course 2017 (Student1)

After Easter’s holidays we kept working on our derby’s. Upper, lining and insole are ready for the lasting. I can’t wait to learn the goodyear stitching of the sole. On Saturday my family came to Florence (finally!). So happy to have them here!

The knife needs to be well sharp, if not, cutting the insole is quite impossible.
