Dolce Vita Shoes
An authentic workshop of handmade and bespoke shoes for both men and women.
The lasts of the film stars, artists and musicians who, between the 50’s and the 70’s, left the imprint of their feet in this historic workshop in via Sistina, are still preserved here. Tito Petrocchi’s manufacturing tradition and stylistic simplicity have been preserved and handed down by his grandson and collaborator Bruno Ridolfi who continues to run the family business in his shop in vicolo Sugarelli. His style has always been oriented towards good taste and classicism, exclusively reinterpreted with several variations such as the turned up tip in men’s footwear.
Petrocchi is featured in A Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.
