Alfio became a craftsman in the hippie period while living in a community near Venice. Skins and leather immediately attracted him and he started making bags to sell in local markets.
His particular style, the craftsmanship and originality of his bags are highly appreciated and in 2014 he was invited to demonstrate creating his bags at Palazzo Pitti during the Haute Couture fashion shows.

Italy, CodigoroFIND IT HERE
Located on the delta of the Po, the longest Italian River, Codigoro developed in the middle ages around the Benedictine Abbey of Pomposa. Originally built on an island, the Abbey is now on the Mainland as a result of various deviation works during the wars between Ferrara, Venice and the Papal States which repeatedly changed the course of the river.
1671 was the year in which the Abbey was abandoned and Codigoro began a new life as a commercial crossroads with a fair that still continues.
