The new facility covers 59,000 sq ft across three floors with offices, a canteen and an expansive terrace.

The brand reports that each of its shoes will be produced in the new workshop, including design, development, research, quality control, prototyping and final production stages.

CEO Leo Rongone said: “Since its foundation, Bottega Veneta has been deeply rooted in the culture, community and unique traditions of the Veneto region.

“The craftsmanship that defines the house can only come from this territory, and we could not have chosen a better place than Vigonza, in the footwear district of the Riviera del Brenta, to house our atelier.”

The company is also establishing a new headquarters in Milan at the Palazzo San Fedele, originally the site of the Manzoni theatre.
