Salvatore Ferragamo

Salvatore Ferragamo

Salvatore Ferragamo was born in 1898 in Bonito, near Naples. At the age of 11 he was apprenticed to a shoemaker in Naples. At the age of 14 he went to America. In the early Twenties he moved to Santa Barbara, California, to join another brother and here he opened a shoe-repair shop. Salvatore began to design and make shoes for cinema. In 1923 he opened the ‘Hollywood Boot Shop’, which marked the start of his career as ‘shoemaker to the stars’, as he was defined by the local press. He has a big success and in 1927 Salvatore decided to return to Italy, to Florence, a city traditionally rich in skilled craftsmanship. Cork, wood, metal wire, raffia, felt, and glass-like synthetic resins were among the innovative materials that Ferragamo used to creatively replace the leather and steel which trade restrictions prevented him from using. In the post-war period, all over the world the shoes of Salvatore Ferragamo became a symbol of Italy’s reconstruction, through design and production. Salvatore Ferragamo died in 1960 and his family was left the task of carrying on and fulfilling the plan that Salvatore had nurtured in his final years: transforming Ferragamo into a great fashion house.
