What to expect

You're missing something when you buy a handmade product on the web without smelling its scent and touching it first. The web is useful to find shops selling made in Italy products, but the only way to find out what they really offer is by visiting them.

During the workshop, the experienced craftswoman Olivia Monteforte will try to pass down to you all her knowledge as a shoemaker. Visit the shop and discover how all 5 senses are involved in the creation of a pair of shoes.

At the end of the activity, you will have a better understanding of the shoes you wear after having experienced Italian craftsmanship firsthand.
