The Calzoleria di Max e Gio was born from the entrepreneurial spirit of two young shoemakers who decided to unite their ideas, technical abilities, creativity and love for shoes.
Their hope is to help younger generations appreciate the artisan craft of shoemaking and also to revive that appreciation in those who are already familiar with the craft.
“Located in the historic “Jewish ghetto” neighborhood of Bologna, our workshop provides a space for you to rediscover the pleasant touch of soft leather and the inviting scents of its hide and skin.


Together, we will choose the model and materials, in comfortable discussion about fashion, as it happened long ago.
Our store will be appreciated by those who still love to leave the house and descend into the “bottega”, a space where the most important things are care, attention to detail, patience, and devotion to the customer.
Our product is dedicated to people who love wearing a handmade shoe, unique and irreplaceable in its reflection of the customer’s personality.
Join us as we transform your dreams into soles and seams.
