The area
Address
Neighborhood: Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

This is the place to come in Florence for leather jackets and coats. You will be fitted to perfection and the quality of the leather is beyond none! This was our second time visiting Franco Fonati at his store (the last time being 2017) and again, he did not disappoint. He found the perfect jackets for me and my daughter and had them custom fitted in less than a day! The craftsmanship is superb.

Franco is easily one of the best salesmen I’ve ever encountered in my entire life. All of his pieces are gorgeous and allows you to custom make your perfect jacket. He has unique colors and details to jackets that you can’t find anywhere else. I’m so excited for my jacket to come in

We found this leather shop as a happy accident. My wife and I were out exploring Florence I just happened to be outside of our breakfast shop and I walked into Gianni. Gianni and I started a conversation regarding my Mexican hat and then we establish a conversation about other topics and after we finish breakfast Gianni invited and walked with us to Dante Leather shop we had a great opportunity to meet Dante and Karina our new best friends in Florence. Upon further conversation and trying few jackets my wife and I bought each other a jacket nice leather after long conversation with Dante, Gianni and Karina, Gianni walked us to purses shop and meet Mati and off course my wife went crazy and bought herself few purses for her and my daughter, election is amazing. Great place and people also they told us that they are going to be in La Jolla California next February 2017 if you have an opportunity please contact them for a private invitation to the show.

I bought a jacket at one of their shops in Florence. They didn't have the correct size, so was promised one to be sent within 3 weeks. It never arrived and I am out 450 Euros. None of the phone numbers reach anyone and the email on their website would not go through. An impossible situation from afar and HUGE error on my part. Buyer beware -

Was fortunate enough to purchase not one, but two shearling coats from this store. Felt the sales associate was somewhat pushy and was willing to sell me something even if it wasn’t the right fit.

We found this leather shop as a happy accident. My wife and I were out exploring Florence our first day there. We happened to walk by an alley and saw that there were outdoor market shops set up all along the alley. Upon further exploration it was amazed at the amount if leather goods that most of the stands had, about 80% of them were selling leather items, purses, belts, and of course jackets. Dante's was one of these shops, we were greeted by Mati, a nice fellow from Argentina and he led us inside to the store(the outdoor shop leads into the store front). The selection is amazing and I got a handmade lambskin leather jacket tha was made in Italy for $200 euro ($260 American ) amazing! My wife's jacket on the pic was only $150 euro. Great place and people!

Go to Venice for glass, Parma for cheese, and Dante Leather Factory in Florence for leather. You'll leave with the most beautiful jackets and stories to make your friends jealous. Franco, you have a customer for life!!

I am from NYC, I was touring Italy and stumbled across Dante Leather Shop. I purchased a beautiful mink Blazer, The Blazer is very thick and elegant. I know for a fact if I had purchased this item in the States would have paid over $2,000. Dante even took the time to make a few alterations while I continued too finish shopping in the market area. Dante you have a life time customer.

Met Franco Fonati, the owner of Dante Leather Factory, and had an amazing experience trying on custom, original, beautifully handcrafted leather jackets! Franco and his staff were so fun and helpful.

Visiting with Franco and his staff at Dante Leather, David 2 Leather, for our fourth time was as usual a very fun shopping experience. His leather coats are beautiful and very high quality. The visit is a great experience from the time you are greeted with a glass of Franco’s wine to his ability to pick the right style in the right size. Our friends who accompanied us on this trip also came away with beautiful coats. Looking forward to seeing you again in the future, Franco.
