This books is devoted to the life and work of one of the world’s most important fashion designers, the Italian Salvatore Ferragamo. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, it includes essays by four well-known authors who approach the subject of footwear from different perspectives, analyzing it as an everyday object that evokes and convokes dreams and fantasies, as a product of its age, as a reflection of its user, and as a motif in artistic experimentation and aesthetic contemplation. The talent of Ferragamo, who was able to withstand adversity to exploit the resources within his reach and create pieces of great beauty and craftsmanship, is never lost sight of. The book includes a descriptive catalogue of the 80 shoes on display in the exhibit, chosen from the collection of the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence, Italy.
