Alberto Fasciani’s inventiveness and creativity take their energy and inspiration from the enchanting scenery of the Marches, a land rich in history and natural beauty. The sea, the gentle hills, the colours and quality of life all help shape Fasciani’s creations. Here, in this corner of Italy, antique crafts, passed down from generation to generation, continue to maintain their values and secrets intact. It is these deeply rooted traditions that have made the Marches famous as the home of fine Italian footwear. Significantly, one of the area’s oldest traditions is the art of tanning, and the leather crafts of footwear and bag making centre on the area around Macerata and Fermo where Alberto Fasciani is based.
