SGM was started in 1978. But our history had already begun at the end of the 1960s, when Angelo Sgariglia opened a factory to produce shoe-soles in Montegranaro. Montegranaro is one of the most important shoemaking centres in Italy and in Europe, where artisan work culture is handed down from generation to generation, and craft is learnt by working. The company then grew and evolved, and from a family business it became an industrial group. Throughout the big and small changes, the SGM quality has never altered, and if it has changed, it’s always been for the better. Today, SGM is run by Angelo’s children, Viliana, Simone and Fabiana.
