Raffaele Antonelli likes to say that after more than 50 years of being a tailor, he is beginning his apprenticeship today. He also firmly believes in the transmission of knowledge, and one of his greatest joys is welcoming visitors into his atelier. He knows that in order to understand the craft, it is necessary to see the clothes and how they are made. It’s important to see and touch the materials that he uses, and hear the history of Neapolitan tailoring. Silence reigns in the atelier because, as Raffaele says, “we work with our hands, not with machines. And hands make no noise.” Visits should be booked in advance.
