At the beginning..
Martegani was born in 1891 by Piero Martegani who was a leather trader.
He loved his work very much but he loved the world of footwear even more so much so that in 1891 he had the opportunity to take over a company in Legnano together with some partners and from here he began his journey in the world of footwear.
Over time, with great efforts and sacrifices, Martegani created what is now synonymous with luxury shoes, handmade, made in Italy.Martegani made custom-made shoes for all the nobles of that time and everyone's aspiration was to go to his shop. Over time, with great efforts and sacrifices, Martegani created what is now synonymous with luxury shoes, handmade, made in Italy.
The Martegani history crosses over at a certain point with the history of the Corti family who relaunched the brand and industrialized it but always recovering the origins of manufacturing up to the new generation with Nicole.
Giancarlo Corti was able to pass his passion to his daughter Nicole, who since childhood enjoyed going down to the factory alongside her father to build shoes for her dolls with scraps of leather.
To date, after having sustained design and modeling studies, she decides to enter the company and to give an innovative and modern turn, always maintaining the origins and values of Martegani.
Each shoe produced in the Martegani factory is produced with the love and attention necessary to make each product unique.
Martegani stands out for the care of the leathers, the extreme attention to quality, the historical artisan experience and the courage of experimentation. In his shoes, languages and styles merge in a constant reinterpretation of the raw material, leather.
