Maria is daughter of the small bourgeoisie of Barcelona. It graduated in violin, studied beautiful arts, lived for years in Italy.
It decided to change his life, beginning a job that for many considers precarious: it decided to turn into a shoemaker, a work in extinction, realised mainly for the men, and that many consider a humble work.
To achieve this, without giving up his independence, has transformed a venue in a house-workshop, where lives and works to his project of repair and creation of new shoes done to size. It works where lives and lives where works in a same space, without solution of continuity.
In a period of economic crisis, Maria’s decision is, definitely, a brave decision and atípica. Not to lose his emancipation and not going back to live with the parents how did it many other, decided to reduce his comfort, putting to if same in a particular situation.
This work has as a objective show the daily tension, in which lives the greater part of his days, in a quite small space.
