Italian and English text

This is a manual for making clogs; it includes the history of clogs and the study of their structure and form, according to their various uses and the needs and customs either in various parts of the world and over a certain period of time.
The volume briefly covers the history of clogs and, at the same time, imparts the necessary instructions for making a pair of clogs. It ideally returns to a pragmatism which contrasts with a culture that separates the intellectual virtues from those related to handicrafts. This is a small contribution which pays its tribute to the civilization and transfers to the new generations the ability of making things, the essence of man’s creative spirit.
