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 7-One Year Course 2017 (Student1)

During these days we all worked as more as possible to our models, because of next week’s spring break. We completed uppers and linings and we started the assembly by creating the insoles.
Every day I am learning more, lessons are always more interesting and challenging. Can’t wait to see my first really pair of shoes finished!
On Sunday I came back to my home town in Calabria, where my mom is living. I missed her so much.

春休みを来週に控え、今週はできる限り作業を進めておこうとみんな頑張りました。完成したアッパーにライニングを貼ったら、中底への吊り込み作業を始めます。
毎日新しい学びがあるので、レッスンはますます楽しく、やりがいを感じるものになっていきます。初めての自分の1足が完成するのが待ち遠しくて仕方がありません。
日曜日は地元のカラブリアへ里帰りし、母に会ってきました。久しぶりに会えて嬉しかったです。

The red stitching is so called ‘fermatura’. It helps to secure the two shoe’s parts.

赤い刺繍はfermatura(イタリア語で「留める」という意味)という、補強のための縫いです。

We put a support on the point, between upper and lining.

The train to Calabria seemed like a boat on the sea.

カラブリアへ向かう列車の車窓からの眺め。まるで海に浮かぶボートに乗っているようです。
