Manovia and Modelleria

An example of the attention Salvatore Ferragamo pays to protecting artisanal skills and the Company's know-how is the Manovia division. Established in 1967, it creates samples and prototypes as well as fine-tunes the structures for new models, producing exclusive footwear every day. 
Moreover, in 2017, a renewed Modelleria and Prototipia division was added: a 1,200 square meters lab where research and craftsmanship meet, designed to allow the transmission of know-how from leather master craftsmen to young talents.
Manovia and Modelleria divisions are fundamental for preserving the Company's know-how, a legacy of its Founder nowadays upheld by skilled artisans.
