About Cesare Paciotti... Cesare Paciotti shoes, Cesare Paciotti belts, and Cesare Paciotti handbags are synonymous with luxury. The production of luxury footwear and accessories is a Paciotti family tradition dating back to 1948. Giuseppe and Cecillia Pacciotti, Cesare s parents, first founded the company with a classic, handmade and hand-finished men s line produced out of their factory in Civitanova Marche, Italy. Cesare was greatly influenced and impassioned by his parents dedication as they directed the factory and supervised every last detail. Cesare Paciotti attended the prestigious DAMS College in Bologna, where he refined his artistic talent. After graduation, he traveled the world and researched trends in London, Paris, New York, and even the Middle East. In 1980, Cesare Paciotti inherited the family business and became CEO while his sister, Paola, took on the task of managing operations. Cesare s inspiration along with Paola s management style proved to be an excellent collaboration. They produced the Cesare Paciotti men s line, which is highly recognized for its elegance and quality. Ten years later, Cesare Paciotti women s shoes were first introduced.
