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 2-One Year Course 2017 (Student1)

The second week has been focused on the different décolleté models. We practice a lot but also learn more about good leather and lasts as well. In fact we went both to some leather shops and the lasts factory, “Formificio Romagnoli”, which is one of the well-known in Italy.

It is stimulating to discover everyday something new, and share this passion with different people of different cultures.

2週目の授業では違う種類のデコルテ靴を集中して学びました。実践的な練習もたくさん行いましたが、同時に良い革と木型についても学びを深めました。そのために幾つかの革のお店と「フォルミフィシオ・ロマグノリ」と言う、イタリアで最も有名といわれる木型の工房にも行きました。

毎日新しい発見があることも、靴制作への情熱を国も文化も違う人たちと共有できるのも、とても刺激的です。

Inside the leather shop, it has been hard to make a decision on which one to take. A lot of wonderful colors and textures.

お店で革を選ぶのは大変です。色も手触りも様々なたくさんの革を見ると、中々決断できません。
