A while ago I visited Marche, the region of Italy that produces the quality clothing that Italy is so famous for. Monte San Pietrangeli is the location of the Carelli shoe factory. A family run business steeped in Mediterranean values and traditions, and surrounded in beautiful rolling countryside.
Mama Carelli will not let you leave until you have eaten twice your own body weight in her home grown and cooked food. The Italian hospitality was an experience I won’t forget.
I recently revisited the footage that captured the production of shoes for the UK brand altr. A quite relaxing collection of shots as Nazareno Carelli and his family go about their craft as they always have.
