Valentino factory in Tuscany burned to the ground

In early April, a fire broke out at the factory of the luxury brand Valentino in Italy, in Tuscany VSL - Valentino Shoes Lab. The fire captured 90% of the territory of the enterprise. Victims were avoided as the fire broke out over the weekend.

The VSL factory produced about 1300 pairs of shoes a day, including branded Rockstuds shoes, and employed 160 people.

In addition to machinery, equipment and property, 38 pairs of shoes (both finished and semi-finished) were destroyed, resulting in losses of several million euros in addition to more general losses that have not yet been quantified.

The brand is taking all possible measures to return production without losing the same pace as early as next month. A number of employees will be able to work at the nearby Prada facility, which was kindly provided by Valentino by the Prada brand management for the recovery period. Various processes will take place in this factory, including model development, hand-crafting and finishing of women's shoes. 

A small number of employees will be moved to the Logistic VSL hub, which is located next to the burned-out manufactory.

Valentino CEO Jacopo Venturini said the company is focused on managing the situation "in the best possible way, as well as reprogramming production activities in the factory to minimize social and economic impact."
