“That has been my life’s work: striving to learn to make shoes that always fit and the refusal to put my name to any that do not fit.” Those are the words of maestro Salvatore Ferragamo himself, written in the preface to “Shoemaker of Dreams: The Autobiography of Salvatore Ferragamo.” Today, the Italian luxury goods company is bringing the story full circle with the announcement of a forthcoming documentary film by Luca Guadagnino, set to debut at the 77th Venice Film Festival this coming September.

Titled “Salvatore, Shoemaker of Dreams,” the project is a beautiful tale of a pioneer craftsman whose creative genius remains as unrivaled and timeless to this day. “We were overjoyed to learn that the film about my father’s life would be presented at the Venice Film Festival,” announced Ferruccio Ferragamo. “It is an honor for me and my entire family that a director of Luca Guadagnino’s caliber would take an interest in our family history, adapting it for the big screen.”
