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 15-One Year Course 2017 (Student1)

Finally I finished the derby model. The heel and the sole finish has done! So Angelo taught me a new shoe model, the mocassino one.
Also with mocassino I will practice the goodyear construction of the sole. I really need to train a lot to deal with it.

To protect the upper while doing the goodyear second stitching we use the tape.
