Mancini Leather since 1918

A century of experience in leather goods.

The history of the Mancini family is compelling. In 1918 the master saddler Tito Mancini moved from Ascoli Piceno to Rome to open his workshop at the Theatre of Marcellus‘ arches, at that time buried up to the second row of arches. In 1926 began the restoration work to bring to light the buried part of the theatre and the shops located inside the building were cleared. On that occasion Tito brought to Rome his son Eugenio, with whom he opened a new workshop for the processing of leather specializing in luggage.

They produced finishes in leather for the film costumes of Quo Vadis (1951), the scene luggage for Il Gattopardo (1963) and for the stage play Il giardino dei ciliegi, directed by Luchino Visconti.

 

 

In the Mancini’s workshop was also created a folder in white nappa leather and white calf leather commissioned as a gift to Pope Pius XII.

Moreover, Gucci relied repairs to Mancini for over thirty years.

Since then, the heirs of the Mancini family continue the artisan tradition for four generations, now with the great grandson Riccardo Mancini in the shop / workshop in Via della Palombella 28, Rome, right behind the Pantheon.
