PAOLO SCAFORA SHOES - SUPERLATIVE LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
The artisanal story of the Scafora family starts in the outskirts of Naples in 1956. Since then designing and manufacturing high-end shoes, either ready-to-wear and bespoke has been the focus. Gennaro Scafora was the eldest of eight children and born in 1942 in Naples. Founder of Paolo Scafora, taking the name from one of his sons, Gennaro was a workshop apprentice in the Industrial Neapolitan alleys of the fifties. He immediately developed talent and passion for the shoe craftsmanship and passed his skills to his younger brothers. In the seventies, he starts up a small workshop of the production of leather soles. His passion, efforts and constant drive were rewarded. His son, Paolo Scafora, learned the secrets of the master craftsman and became the driving force taking the Paolo Scafora brand on the next level.
