Antonio Ruocco of Da Costanzo

22 August 2011
I went to visit a very special shoemaker on the isle of Capri - Antonio Ruocco.
Since Roman times, strappy sandals have been the symbol of Capri. Antonio is continuing the ancient techniques and tradition of sandalmaking passed down from his father, Costanzo, using the very same tools and leather suppliers from Tuscany. You can see the photograph of Costanzo on the wall behind his workbench overseeing each pair being made! Ispirazione!
