Rivolta Milano 

It all began with the first atelier, opened by Enrico Rivolta in 1883 in Via del Gesù, Milan. 

Calzoleria Rivolta soon made a name for itself, thanks to its exquisitely handcrafted bespoke shoes, using the most refined cobbling techniques.

Before WW II, the atelier was moved to Via Verri by Enrico’s son, Franco Rivolta. 
In Guido Vergani’s “Dictionary of Fashion”, Franco offers this memory: “Then, through a glass door, a theatrical entrance made flesh, a living coup-de-théâtre, he would arrive, small, smiling, fast-moving, with tousled white hair.  He wore a white lavallièr e bow tie with white polka dots. Physically, he was somewhere  between  Arturo Toscanini and Charlie Chaplin’s Calvero  from Limelight. Rivolta’s last produced shoes gave every man’s foot an unrivalled slenderness.”


During the fervid years of the reconstruction and the economic boom of the ‘60s, Rivolta made to measure shoes became the ultimate in masculine elegance. In addition to many of the leading Milanese aristocratic and bourgeois families and cultural figures, clients came from all over Italy, and many aficionados from overseas followed suit as well, especially from the UK. 

Today Fabrizio Rivolta, a direct descendant of Enrico and Franco, continues the family tradition, always in the heart of Milan, in Via della Spiga 17.
