About me

For 30 years in the

leather fashion accessories sector

, I have built in Giorgio Linea srl, my

artisan workshop

, in the splendid Florentine countryside, and, with my team I collaborate with the most important world brands. Givenchy, Burberry, Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfield, Céline, Giorgio Armani, Cholè, Roberto Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo, Balenciaga, Ermanno Scervino are just a few examples of my experience.
The archive of samples, created in Giorgio Linea in more than 30 years of work, has become a powerful tool for designers, product managers and emerging talents, thanks to the spin-off My Vintage Academy, since 2012.
I think that there is no better promotion for us that our work, I make available a tool with a high creative rate, an heritage to be inspired and for acquiring trends and artisanal techniques of our undisputed excellence Made in Italy.
I welcome students, industry professionals and all the people interested, with passion in my company, proposing them an unusual teaching experience, perfect synergy between theory and practice in a working artisan workshop, giving the opportunity to realize a fashion accessory and to understand the whole constitutive process.
Promoter of our Italian craftsmanship and know how in all its forms, I participate at events, promoted by important local and national authorities such as Tuscany Region, Lineapelle and Artex etc, aimed at attributing the deserved value to Italian mastery, in order to preserve the heritage of

artisanal traditions and Italian creativity
