Welcome to Selle San Marco South Africa
Selle San Marco is a famous and historical handmade saddles firm based in Rossano Veneto, Italy. This small town is world famous thanks to the production of racing saddles. Modern saddles, but with a glorious past.
Luigi Girardi was the man who made Rossano Veneto the undisputed world capital of saddles by opening Selle San Marco here 75 years ago. No stranger to hard work, he work started at an early age in the local spinning mill and as a hand street sweeper. It was in 1935 that young Girardi turned a 100-lire loan into a business distributing bicycle accessories. This eventually became what Selle San Marco is today.
