Progetto Giordano Torresi is an all-Italian research and design centre that serves the brands and manufacturers in the footwear industry on a daily basis.

The aim is to devise advanced solutions for the development of any shoe design from prototype, to sample, to final product; engineering and automating the processes through the application of digital technology and the research and development of the manufacturing processes.

This approach ensures that each pair of shoes is perfect in every possible way. The distinguishing features of Progetto are its development of robotics, which can be applied even in women’s footwear production allowing variations in heel heights, and its digitalisation of industrial manufacture, something still unknown to the footwear industry.


Progetto Giordano Torresi aims to solve and transform technical problems by defining and reworking the existing processes, evolving them into new, cost- and time-sensitive production solutions while also preparing companies for the new demands of the market, in particular, customisation.
The engineering and the researched leathers and innovative materials, suitable for the particular shoe style, are the basis for the “re-evolution” of Progetto.


New market trends are creating an ever increasing need to offer customers shoe customisation at the time of purchase, either in-store or online.

Thanks to Progetto Giordano Torresi, the digitalisation of a customised production process for “MADE to ORDER” and “MADE to MEASURE” is achievable and manageable. It takes a dedicated team able to turn research, development and engineering into reality and unites them with a production capacity aimed at creating very small quantities which meet the highest standards of quality.

This philosophy has already found applications with the foremost luxury brands and through two solid business cases created by Progetto Giordano Torresi to support its engineering activities and to show where the market is going in the real world.
In fact, it would be true to say, Giordano Torresi shoes represent a real concentration of innovation.


The business know-how and research from Progetto Giordano Torresi have created the Giordano Torresi shoe; a shoe that can cater to the individual needs of every woman.

A shoe designed with the aim of adding benefits to the end-user, not through the reputation of the brand, but by the exclusivity of a customised product that is the result of a real 4.0 Industrial process.

To demonstrate this, they have selected an exclusive location: 10 Corso Como, the famous concept store at the centre of Milan’s fashion.
Customers at 10 Corso Como will be able design their own dream shoe using a Digital Wall that hosts a holographic 3D configurator especially made for the purpose.
A Digital Table, on which the customer will be able to simply place the shoe of their choice, is the mean, thanks to RFID technology, to automatically start the customisation process. The result will then be displayed using the incredibly realistic Holographic Display within the Digital Wall. It is an easy-to-use tool that that gives an immediate result.


The second Business Case uses the same concepts of shoe customisation as used in the retail sector, but here the PROGETTO Giordano Torresi focuses entirely on how customers can configure their own shoe from a PC or mobile through an e-commerce website.
Giordano Torresi has also designed a special online shopping experience; the customer will receive notifications and video about the production status of their shoe aimed at keeping them updated during the process of its creation.
