In the early decades of the twentieth century, in Montegranaro, a little city in the Marche region, immediately after the First World War, Adelio Franceschetti, grandfather of the current owners of the Calzaturificio Franceschetti, started men's shoes production, completely handmade in the workshop downstairs.
His two sons, Annibale and Ugo, soon joined him in the shop and at the end of World War II Adelio established, with their support, the company "Calzaturificio Adelio" of Franceschetti Brothers. They carried on the production of shoes after the death of their father in 1957, changed location several times for their laboratory, until 1965, when it was inaugurated what today is the base of the Calzaturificio Franceschetti.
In 1983, with the transition to the third generation, the current company was established under the name of Calzaturificio "Franceschetti Srl". The key to success was that it had always produced a high range of shoes, mainly in leather, characterized by double-stitched with blake rapid method, hand milling, cladding and colors of leathers always handmade, as befits to the greatest bottier masters. A peculiarity characterizes each brand: the natural tendency of the master craftsmen of the Calzaturificio Franceschetti to excellence and attention to details.
Franceschetti is the brand name linked to the family, with its refined taste and typically Italian lines which best embodies the marriage of design and handcraft made in Italy.
Each Franceschetti’s shoe best summarizes the encounter between the love of the avant-garde design and respect for an old profession, regarding competence, passion and dedication to work. For this reason, each product combines the elegance of a more appropriate design more sophisticated and the comfort that only a handmade shoe can provide. Made from the finest materials, using sophisticated lasts, carefully selected by expert artisans, these shoes optimally define a typically Italian aesthetic, in which the wisdom of the craftsman meets the creative rationality of the designer.
