I create leather bags right behind the Pantheon, it is no coincidence that I named them as the Roman gods!

— RICCARDO MANCINI

A century of experience
Since 1918

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.

Quo Vadis

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 in the shop / workshop in Via della Palombella 28, Rome, right behind the Pantheon.

Oasi di qualità in un mondo di centri commerciali. Entrando da Mancini Leather si ha una opportunità unica... vivere un'esperienza. Si perchè partendo dalla Location, alle spalle del Pantheon, al profumo di pelllami e allo splendido negozio... ci si trova a parlare con il titolare, artigiano & artista, che vi guida nel suo mondo. Io ho avuto la fortuna di vedere il laboratorio con i pellami e le parti di una borsa... insomma... FANTASTICO.

This one is a legitimate made-in-Italy leather store. The owner mentioned his family has run the business for generations and he hand makes everything himself. Quality of the leather and craftsmanship shows in every touch, feel and smell of the product. After I stopped by several “Italian leather” shops across the town, I only made purchases here. Wish I had a bigger suitcase!

Nice quaint local shop with quality goods. Unfortunately there wasn't anything suitable for us but the staff (or owner?) was so friendly and nice regardless. Highly recommended to include in your browsing list if you are looking for local leather goods!

아빠에게 선물할 지갑을 구입했어요. 가죽도 좋고, 디자인도 깔끔했습니다. 무엇보다 다른 곳은 어딘가에서 납품받아서 판매하는 거 같은데 이곳은 사장님께서 직접 작업하고 계셔서 더 믿음이 가더라고요. 나중에 로마를 또 간다면 방문할 계획입니다. 그때까지 예쁜 물건 많이 만들어주세요:)

We stumbled upon this store on the way to the Pantheon, and I now wonder why they aren’t featured in travel guides and trip advisor! Fantastic workmanship, we bought 2 wallets and a handbag and I am now wishing that I bought another wallet (I just couldn’t find my ideal colour) now that I’ve left Rome. The workmanship is unparalleled. This is true quality. Highly recommended. I haven’t come across any shop with similar quality in Florence, which is supposed to be famous for its leather!

Absolutely delightful shop with reasonably priced, quality leather goods. I purchased a pocketbook for my daughter and she loves it. The owner was very kind and patient with my very limited Italian, and it was an all-around wonderful experience. It's hidden behind the Pantheon, but it's well-worth searching out.
