Naples is an oblique city, crossed by stairs, steps, ramps, ascents and descents more or less known, in a complex and articulated system of connections between the hills and the sea, between the chaos of traffic and the peace of the  panoramic viewpoints.
Devised and accomplished  in the 14th century, by the architects Tino di Camaino and Francesco de Vito, as an artery to facilitate the transport of materials needed for the construction of the Charterhouse of San Martino, the Pedamentina was several times equipped with defense systems against those who wanted to besiege Castel Sant’Elmo,
Walking the more than 400 steps from the square in front of the Certosa to Montesanto Station is certainly a fascinating experience

This evocative route connects small different “worlds” through passages and narrow streets that seem to have a life of their own, away from the hustle and bustle of the city
Our Pedamentia gloves are  inspired by the staircase, made of enormous steps descending steeply down, like the transverse lines of the Vitale Barberis Canonico fabric. History and legends together enriching our heritage.
