Concierge.com's insider take:
Young shoemaker Roberto Ugolini's small workshop is just off Piazza Santo Spirito; you can watch him and his apprentices at work turning out exquisite men's shoes. From the first measurements to the finished article, expect to wait about four months, but the result will be well worth the patience required, and the shoes will last for years. Ugolini's models are mostly along fairly traditional lines: wingtips and monk straps with various degrees of decoration in a whole range of colors.
