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.
Made in Sassari. He has always been passionate about fashion, he graduated in Law at LUISS University of Rome, where he lives and works, over the years he acquired an expertise in institutional communication. From now on, he is in charge of public relations and event planning, and he is also a consultant for AltaRoma.
An air of reverence even pervades the laboratory of this small shop which stands in the shadow of Rome’s Pantheon, where the exact measurements of Pope John Paul II are still preserved by the Gammarelli brothers.
Made in Town presents a reflection on the ambiguity between original artwork and serial manufacture or reproduction.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of six video interviews of French and European designers, who have integrated the know-how of the glass factory into their creations. Each in their own way, they mastered glass.
