Tragic, shocking news.
My heart goes out to his family and loved ones.
A great loss.

Tragic. I was at his shop last month and was not able to meet him because he was not feeling well. Prayer for his family

Awful news. Any knowledge on his ailments?

Always disturbing to see one so young (and extremely talented) go in such a manner.

Tragic news. Genius calzolaio. May he RIP. Gutted.

So sad. I just had emails with him last week and he was discussing November work. He was always a pleasure to deal with.

This is terribly sad news...he was an intensely passionate shoemaker who loved his craft. He was a close friend of mine visiting me both in the U.S. as well as me visiting him and his family in Vigevano.

No personal experience with him, but I've heard nothing but good things, and his work obviously spoke for itself. Terribly sad news indeed.

Sad news

That's a sad news. I met his staff last week in his workshop in Vigevano, even I never met him in person but he is definitely very nice to work with! May he RIP and condolences to Bestetti family .

He has a young son - this is really sad.

Oh Wow. I came here to admire his new commissions and instead I read this....That is shocking truly shocking. What a pity such a craftsman is gone so early. How old was the man?
