Last week, on behalf of Italian shoe brand Fratelli Rossetti, we invited Dutch journalist Michou Basu from De Telegraaf to visit the brand's headquarters in Parabiago, about 20 kilometers from Milan.
Not only did she write a story for last Monday's edition of the nationwide newspaper, she also explains the craftsmanship involved in shoemaking in a clip shown on De Telegraaf's website. Fratelli Rossetti is particularly known for the traditional and timeconsuming way of shoemaking which takes over 150 steps. Most of the people involved in this process have decades of experience.
Fratelli Rossetti is a family business now led by the second generation, brothers Diego, Luca and Dario Rossetti. In Belgium, Fratelli Rossetti has flagship stores in Antwerp and Brussels and in the Netherlands all Bijenkorf department stores sell the collection.
