The word “Fanga” derives from Bologna’s popular culture: it comes from the local dialect and means “shoe”.

It's the voices, the faces, the knowledge, the stories, the places and the virtuous models surrounding Fanga. It's the love for a cultural heritage worth preserving and celebrating. Fanga shoes are produced entirely in Italy: they’re the product of fine artisan work, respectful of the traditional practice, process, and rhythm.
