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.

Shoe Making 22-One Year Course 2017 (Student1)

14 days to finish the course. A lot of other courses in Riaci are finishing, so these days I have been busy in working in the lab, but sadly also to say “goodbye” to some good friends I met here in the school.
This weekend I went to south Italy where my family lives. We have really gorgeous seaside.
