“Vittorio Spernanzoni was born in 1936 in Morrovalle, in the heart of Le Marche. Right in the aftermath of the war, he started working at a very young age as a shop boy at a shoemaker’s of his town. Soon he would start his own workshop – out of the space below his home’s stairs – trying out different finishing techniques.In 1965 he started his business adventure, and produced the first shoes entirely made in his workshop. Although passed away prematurely, he had been able to transfer his knowledge – and passion – onto his children Enrico, Roby and Lorella, who are still working in line with the teachings of their father, to create extremely detailed pieces. Naturally drawn towards always improving its skills in this trade, over 20 years Spernanzoni has been able to establish its name as one of the best hand-made workshops in the world, manufacturing goodyear welted shoes and many more. Thanks to its reputation, the company has secured partnerships with some of the major international fashion brands.
The creation of an entirely hand-made line under the Vittorio Spernanzoni brand is aiming at paying tribute to the late founder but it also represents the consistent choice to save and revamp the hand-made tradition that still relies on skilled craftsmen, who – with just a bunch of tools, endless patient and great ability – create long-lasting products. By the Vittorio Spernanzoni line, the company wishes to create exclusive products making the most of manual and craftsmanship skills, as the result of a process of de-industrialisation of the production line…
