HOME-BASED WORKSHOP

Bontoni represents one of the last remaining established, in-home (“casa e bottega“), family-owned artisanal workshops in all of Italy.

Bontoni operates one of the last casa e bottega in Italy. Until the middle of the past century, “case e botteghe,” or in-house artisan workshops were the staple of luxury craftsmen throughout Italy. When Guido Gazzani first started making shoes 70 years ago, it was common for tailors, hat makers, picture framers and other craftsmen to maintain their workshop in their home. 

Bontoni shoes are still made in a workshop

in our family home, just as they were when Guido Gazzani first started making shoes over a half-century ago. In 2020, in response to the need for a roomier workspace, we moved some of our operations nearby. Of course, part of our operations remains in-house; in our casa e bottega.

Our nine-person bottega sits among the rolling hill overlooking the medieval town of Montegranaro. At Bontoni, we are

deeply aware of the intrinsic link between our superb craftsmanship and quality and our family bottega. One could not exist without the other.
