The Father of Magnanni

A Legacy of Shoemaking

Pascual Blanco Martinez

Pascual Blanco Martinez learned shoemaking from his grandfather at a young age. It is an exacting craft not suited for the impatient. He thrived on its precise nature and the satisfaction of turning a sketch into a gentleman's favorite pair of shoes. Pascual's drive for perfection motivated him to become head designer before turning 20-years old. Under his leadership and fueled with a passion for creating a line of shoes more elegant and luxurious than ever before, Pascual rebranded the company under a new name, Magnanni.
