In Bologna, under the charming portico that connects Porta Saragozza’s Arch of Meloncello and leading up to the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca, there is a place where accessories are assembled trying to translate the wishes of those who cross the threshold. It’s the workshop of Marco Ferriani – also known as “Il Borsaiolo” (“The Pickpocket”) – a craftsman who creates bags that put together the emotions of his clients who inspire and guide him in the process of shaping the unique artifacts. With a particular attention to the detail all the bags are realized with the best materials.
Produced on commission or in small limited editions, the bags are striking for the refinement and the quality that dialogue with the comfort. However, they’re never missing on functionality and never to be considered as mere object containers.
