When Italian-based shoe company
While sales hadn't worked well out in Italy, Due Farina wanted to keep the Italian concept of la bella figura (the beautiful figure) in the design of its shoes while using the benefits of its new locale. It sounds straightforward enough, but doing so proved more of challenge than co-owner Marina Rosin had anticipated. As far as manufacturing goes, she found, Brazil and Italy are literally and figuratively oceans apart.
