• The shoe factory was founded in 1926 as a small workshop in the historic center of Naples. Luigi Della Pia, progenitor, gives rise to a completely hand-made production of about 18 pairs per day. At the end of the war, the family Della Pia rolls up his sleeves and start again with new enthusiasm. The shoe is crafted until 1984. In 1985 the brothers Luigi, Pasquale and John Della Pia, along with his father Antonio, enrich the company with new production techniques and adopt new business strategies.
