Silvano Sassetti

Founded 1977 in Italy
Based in Fermo

Silvano Sassetti’s story is one about passion family and handicraft. Sassetti shoe-factory was born in a house from Monte San Pietrangeli. In 1977, Silvano together with his brother Fiore, gave birth to a tradition extremely impregnated with leather smell, which the factory bore witness to. Fiore looked after the commercial tasks, the interaction with customers that were more and more addicted to the Silvano’s creations.

When Andrea and Emanuele, Silvano’s sons, started working for the agency, their intuition and passion allow the Sassetti shoe-factory to become one of the most important and appreciated agencies of the area in our country (at present, there’s a branch in Monte San Pietrangeli, surrounded by greenery, and a showroom in Milan). It’s an emblem of Made in Italy and Italian handicraft, which are really cherished in the whole world.
