Each hand-painted stroke of every shoe is subtly different leaving no two pairs identical in their texture, patina, and antiquing.
Paving the way in hand painted color technique,
Miguel is the first member of the third generation of the Blanco family to begin leading the production of Magnanni shoes. His signature techniques serve as the lifeblood for all Magnanni patinas.
As a scholared, master painter,
Rocio’s talents are emphasized by her work with color, shadow, and transparency. Her skill has expanded to Magnanni’s signature patinas and can be seen presenting these techniques through exclusive hand painting events.
