Salvatore Ferragamo S.p.A. is an Italian luxury goods company famous across the globe for their iconic leather goods, especially their shoes.

Salvatore_Ferragamo.jpgThe Salvatore Ferragamo headquarters is in Palazzo Spini Feroni in Florence, where there is also a museum dedicated to the designer, who was originally from South Italy but emigrated to the US in 1914. After working with numerous Hollywood icons throughout the 1920s, including Joan Crawford and Gloria Swanson, Ferragamo returned to Italy in 1927, setting up his company, which now employs around 4000 people.

In honour of the 90th anniversary of Salvatore Ferragamo’s return to Italy after spending 12 years in the US, there will be a special exhibition at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum at Palazzo Spini Feroni, called “1927. The Return to Italy”. The exhibition, which spans eight rooms, will be open to the public until May 2018 and gives visitors a wonderful insight into Ferragamo’s creative mind, featuring hand-crafted Italian shoes from the 1920s, priceless fabrics, hand-drawn designs, photographs of Ferragamo and models of shoes designed for the stars, including a pair for Audrey Hepburn. There is even some rare film footage of the designer at work, making a visit to the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence a wonderful treat for anyone interested in fashion.
