1910s | Manifattura di calzature Gio. Cappa & Figlio
Virginio continued his artisanal activity producing with a partner, Eugenio Jachia, at least until the 50s. Gianfranco Pittarel, "Cobbler of the Popes" - so nicknamed for creating special footwear for Pope Paul VI, Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI - recalled that he had learned the secrets of his trade doing the apprentice at Virginio Cappa's.
