Sonia

I am a member of the company and have been working there for 6 years, I have learned the trade from my parents, who have been artisans of leather goods since 1975 and for this they have transmitted all their experience to me. Now as a young craftsman I am proud to carry on the family business and share my knowledge and experience with our guests. We will guide them in the realization of small self-made objects, so they will have a special memory of a unique place of their visit to the city of Florence.
