A scent of leather

A scent of leather and an atmosphere of another era fill the workshop founded in via Petrarca by Giuseppe Ballini back in1925, then handed down to his son Arturo and eventually taken over by Maurizio Marinella, definitely not a newcomer in the world of excellence!
On the ground-floor craftsmen are working in full sight, totally by hand: one pair of shoes requires at least 50-hours’ work. In the underground, a vault hosts a number of wooden moulds, spanning at least 50-years’ activity, which have given shape to several articles, from hunting and riding boots to city shoes and the more recent saddlery and leather pieces.
