Cinzia Araia was born in Venice in 1974. Shoemaking is in her blood because her father was a shoemaker on the Riviera del Brenta. Cinzia established a family business, and for the first time, came into contact with international brands around the world. She started working with well-known Italian brands as soon as she finished her studies. However, she had a different vision and wanted to work independently, so in the year 2010, she founded the brand CINZIA ARAIA.
