“In the heart of Tuscany, we are the history of leather” so begins the video that talks about everything that is “beyond the shoe’s sole.” The tanners are the storytellers and protagonists of the 9 video clips. They are the ones who pass down the secrets of leather tanning from generation to generation, and continue to create a “unique” product: a real leather sole. The event was one of the most important occasions during Pitti week with more than 1,000 participants and with the presence of leading TV personalities such as Andrea Roncato, Stefania Orlando, the actress Roberta Giarrusso, the ballerina from Dancing with the Stars, Samanta Togni and the charming Roberto Farnesi.
