It was born from the great passion of Franco Sagripanti, originally from the Marches and Roman by adoption. He was Valentino's personal tailor; he was a member of the National Academy of Tailors, appointed vice president of the European chamber of haute couture. He founded a tailoring school to learn the ancient trade of the tailor.
Today the tailoring is managed by his sons Marco and Stefano who carry on its values and tradition.
