Pollini was founded in 1953 in San Mauro Pascoli, a small town in Emilia Romagna. With time, this area became an authentic shoemaking district thanks to the local highly skilled artisans. The brand quickly gained notoriety and started producing its leather goods on an industrial scale, which allowed the company to start producing bags as well. But it was only with Pollini’s themed collections that the brand gained its fame. The most famous of these themed collections is "Daytona" with its signature lace-up boots and casual shoes. The line became representative of Pollini’s unique style and was even displayed at New York’s Fashion Museum.
