Founded 1899 in Italy
Based in Rome

The Marini bespoke shoe brand was founded in 1899 by Cav. Giuseppe Marini. The company has since founded their own own school for shoemaking, as well as opened a boutique and an atelier in the heart of Rome, an Via Crispi 97.

When Giuseppe Marini passed away in 1966, he handed over the legacy to his two sons, Felice and Benedetto, and his young nephew Carlo, ready to follow their father's footsteps after years of experience in the workshop.
