Growing up poor in Bonito, Italy, Salvatore Ferragamo began his career as a shoemaker before he was barely a teenager. Immigrating to America in 1915 at the age of 16, his work would soon help invent the glamour of Hollywood's silent era as he created shoes for iconic films and for stars, many of whom became his friends. Overcoming a Depression-era setback, Ferragamo rebounded and would define mid-century elegance for performers - all while embarking on a love story and warm family life with his wife, Wanda, and their six children. In SALVATORE: SHOEMAKER OF DREAMS, Academy Award-nominated and BAFTAnominated filmmaker LUCA GUADAGNINO tracks Ferragamo's life from humble beginnings to California and to a storied studio in Florence, Italy.
