  • The opening words: The story of Cinderella at the ball is the pretext for an interesting excursus on the history of Western footwear – and consequently of costume and fashion – from Ancient Egypt to the present day. From the strangeness and excesses of the fashion of the past, a new and interesting interpretation of contemporary style.

  • The didactic part: a valid tool for re-evaluating the importance of footwear in its value as a status symbol and as a political tool and rediscovering the changes in our customs, hand in hand with technological innovations and the use of new materials.

  • The attached materials can be downloaded for free from the publisher’s website: PDFs and videos for educational use.
