Italian shoe manufacturer based in Molinella (Bologna). From 1998 it has produced a men’s collection. This high-quality brand has been made famous by its close relationship with haute couture, manufacturing for Escada, Gigli, Alaïa, and Coveri. The company was founded by Natale Pancaldi in 1888 and is now in the hands of the third generation of the family, who have a prized collection of hand-made shoes from the 1930s to the present day: a small museum in its own right.
