The Ferragamo family founded the museum in May 1995 to acquaint an international audience with the artistic qualities of Salvatore Ferragamo and the role he played in the history of not only shoes but international fashion as well. Like most corporate museums, Museo Salvatore Ferragamo and its archives stem from the vision of an entrepreneur, in this case Salvatore Ferragamo’s widow, Wanda, who has headed the company since the founder’s death in 1960, and her six children. In particular, the eldest of their children, Fiamma, who managed the company’s core footwear and leather goods business after her father’s death, stood at this project’s helm on behalf of her family and brought it to life, shaping its strategy with the assistance of historians and archivists.

The idea for the museum initially came about when an exhibition was organised at Palazzo Strozzi on the history of Salvatore Ferragamo. The exhibition went on tour and was hosted by some of the world’s most prestigious museums, such as the Victoria and Albert in London, the County Museum of Los Angeles, the New York Guggenheim, the Sogetsu Kai Foundation in Tokyo, and the Museo de Bellas Artes in Mexico. The temporary exhibition gradually became permanent. In recognition of the museum’s cultural importance and that of its many initiatives over the years, in 1999, Salvatore Ferragamo received the Guggenheim Impresa e Cultura Award, given annually to companies that best invest in culture to constructive ends. The museum is located in the historical centre of Florence, in Palazzo Spini Ferroni, which has also been the company’s headquarters since 1938.

Exhibition "The Equilibrium"
"I discovered that when we are standing our weight rests directly plantar arch: a small area that supports all our weight when we walk, you move from one foot to the other. I could fabricate my revolutionary forms that support the arch of the foot, allowing the foot to move like an inverted pendulum. The joints of the midfoot and heel not sustain any more weight and thereby guide the body's balance shoes walking, rather than oppose it "(from autobiography of Salvatore Ferragamo).

Salvatore Ferragamo has dedicated his life to the study of the anatomical foot, dealing with architecture and engineering, as evidenced by its patents. The praise of walking or dancing barefoot on the points to advance to the wire like tightrope walkers, mountain climbing, gait and march on command, walk to find yourself, are just some of the themes addressed in the exhibition Equilibrium at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence, edited by Stefania Ricci and Sergio Recovered. The exhibition is based on a comparison of the works of art of exceptional value and meaning and different media - painting, sculpture, photography, video, film, printed editions - enriched by documentary and historical evidence, archival footage and a series of interviews with celebrities of our time: Miletti Wanda Ferragamo, James Ferragamo, Ferragamo Jerry, Reinhold Messner, Eleanor Abbagnato, Will Self, Cecil Balmond and Philippe Petit. The curators have selected works of Antonio Canova and Edgar Degas, Auguste Rodin and Antoine Bourdelle, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee and Alexander Calder, Bill Viola and Marina Abramović, Vassily Kandinsky, Fausto Melotti. The project joined important international museums and art galleries.

About this artist

Artist biography

The eleventh of fourteen children, Salvatore Ferragamo was born in 1898 in Bonito, a small village 100 kilometres from Naples. Even as a child, Salvatore showed a great passion for shoes: at the age of 11 he was apprenticed to a shoemaker in Naples and at 13 he opened his own shop in Bonito.
