Firenze located in the central point of Italy. Many nobles & merchants gave big support and investment on art & crafts since mid century, which let beautiful Firenze added with new dress of Renaissance. Becoming the cradle & mother land for tide of thought of Renaissance in Europe.
This piece of land that gave birth to many great persons of arts & crafts, also raised up with many well known & stylistic brand within 10 decades, e.g. Gucci (since 1921), Salvatore Ferragamo (since 1928) & Gianfranco Lotti (since 1968). All are famous in the world with their high quality leather goods. No matter along big roads or small streets, people can feel the odor of leather in Firenze. Here, existed there more than a hundred big or small workshops, small shops & booths that are selling leather goods. Also has a leather goods college with more than a hundred years history, that provides lectures for hand-made leather goods.
However, experienced with the baptism of time. Under the mass production format of global integration, all kinds of shops already selling same commodity moulding out from same factory. The workshop, on the street-side in the old town, that Sharpe Law once apprenticed for making hand-made leather goods, was also merged into the tide of new epoch after the retired of old master. Without any mark, but only left with sigh!
