You can't say it's a beauty, but it wasn't meant to be (well, we hope so) but rather to show the infinite possibilities of the then new polyurethane technology applied to soles and heels. Parabiago's Marazzini designed it with the help of Mr. Pagani from Vigevano with whom he struck a partnership called P.M.B (see ad below).

The model was showcased at the Bologna Footwear Fair (March 1972) and a sample is kept at the ever surprising Dutch Leather & Shoe Museum, brought to our attention by curator/wonder woman Inge Specht-den Boer.
