Having learnt the trade in the 50’s at the Petrocchi shoemaking establishment in via Sistina, Ennio Laudadio opened his first shop in 1961 in via Gregoriana, handing down all his artisan expertise to his son.
In addition to its various brands of ready-to-wear footwear, the boutique in via Capo le Case, renovated in 2003, also offers its customers a bespoke service. Production is 100% Italian and research is continuously carried out on the lasts, the colours and, above all, the skins of the three men’s lines: lace-ups, loafers and rubber.
Laudadio is featured in A Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.

As the holidays approach, Made in Town presents an ephemeral selection of furniture, objects, accessories and clothing. For this winter inventory, Made in Town gathers the work of twenty ateliers of different disciplines proposing a variety of products, each born from local fabrication.
