The company has manufactured over 170 million pairs of shoes with over 600 products being released per year.

The foyer area immediately drew visitors into the dreamy world of Campana with an impressive ornate PAMPHILJ ceiling lamp in gilded bronze.

“The amazing Melissa Campana Barroca lines plays with the traditional baroque architectural ornaments, mixing within it unexpected and playful contemporary elements. I’ve used very high resolution digital models of the shoes to create animated compositions that are at the same time very baroque and contemporary, classic and hypnotic. I also explored the reflections offered by the entrance permanent video installation, also designed by me that sometimes multiply the shoes, already multiplied in the animation, infinitely.” – Muti Randolph.
