He only makes 2 pair of shoes in 2 days and he works completely alone, 10 hours a day.His workshop looks more like a museum since he uses old tools he managed to buy over the years.

DIVINA COMMEDIA - INFERNO
|1||Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita|
|2||mi ritrovai per una selva oscura|
|3||ché la diritta via era smarrita.|
|4||Ahi quanto a dir qual era è cosa dura|
|5||esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte|
|6||che nel pensier rinova la paura!|
|7||Tant'è amara che poco è più morte;|
|8||ma per trattar del ben ch'i' vi trovai,|
|9||dirò de l'altre cose ch'i' v'ho scorte.|
