Traditional shoemaker in Sassuolo, Modena.
Bespoke handmade, custom-made and ready-to-wear footwear


Calzoleria Carlino has its roots in Sassuolo back in 1958 when Corbelli Casolari Giancarlo began to attend a then historical workshop to learn about the craft of shoemaking. Soon after, he decided to open his own shop which would popularly take the name of “Carlino”.

And it is after almost 50 years that in 2012 the witness is passed on to his nephew Riccardo who still maintains the reins of the family business, and that among the ancient sights of the historic center of Sassolese, between pitch, string and skin receives visits from customers all over the world.


Extreme expression of identity and uniqueness in every detail.
Personal experience for unique and eternal creations of artifacts.

Our know-how

  • The measures taken minutely during the first appointment will then be sculpted and carved into wooden lasts proudly made within our workshop. Then a pattern, unique and personal, will be made on every last and for each customer according to personal specifications precisely pointed out during the first meeting.
  • Once the test shoe is made, the customer will be invited for a second appointment in which he can wear the model made exclusively as a test, and will indicate any details to be modified, from the fit to the lines of the model, according to your own personal wish.
  • Once the full satisfaction of the customer is reached, the final footwear will be made. Strictly by hand, according to ancient footwear techniques. Nails, pliers and threads will be the lintel of your shoe with the possibility of being always repaired, the guarantee (warranty) is eternal.

1958, Corbelli Casolari Giancarlo founds the shoe shop which will later be called "Carlino".
