An archive of Italian made
men's footwear from 1973 to today
The footwear museum
In order to celebrate Doucal’s 40th anniversary in 2013, the Giannini family added a brand-new wing to the original manufacturing building which they decided to use as an archive.
It is a museum collection in the true sense of the word, showcasing not only 3,000 pairs of shoes but also sketches, notes and feasibility studies.
The company has put together a comprehensive manufacturing retrospective spanning 40 years, from the 70s to today, and each item on display has been carefully labelled and put in chronological order. It is one of the few Italian archives narrating the history of contemporary men’s footwear.
