“That has been my life’s work: striving to learn to make shoes that always fit and the refusal to put my name to any that do not fit. Therefore please look behind the story of the small, barefoot, unlettered boy who became a famous shoemaker, and seek the pleasure you will obtain from walking well.”
These are the final words - written by the man himself - of the preface to Salvatore Ferragamo’s autobiography, the tale of a pioneer whose creative genius remains as unrivalled as it is timeless still today and who unintentionally bound his story to the world of film.
And now his autobiography brings us full circle back to film, with a feature-length documentary directed by Luca Guadagnino and presented at the Venice Film Festival.
