Salvatore Ferragamo, born in a small town near Naples and immigrated to the United States, could not possibly foresee his fortune in the shoe industry. From a small shop in Santa Barbara, California, he started to repair and then create his own shoes for the most famous stars in Hollywood. When he returned to the country of his birth, this time to Florence, he opened his first store in 1927, exporting his unique Italian to the rest of the world. Some of his famous clients were Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Rodolfo Valentino and Greta Garbo. The museum can be found in the beautiful Spini Ferroni building. It contains thousands of shoes which are the evidence of what was produced by Ferragamo from 1927 until his death in 1960.
