The Fiemme Valley-based company brings to life the innovative Parisian hub, created to host must-see events for all climbing enthusiasts.

June 7, 2024, Ziano di Fiemme (TN) – La Sportiva, a company from Val di Fiemme that is a leading manufacturer of footwear and technical clothing for mountain sports, is happy to announce that it will be present in Paris from August 5 to 14 with Maison La Sportiva, a unique concept dedicated to climbing and outdoor sports enthusiasts.

Ingenuity and passion are the drivers that have always guided the Trentino company in its research, development and production activities. They give rise to excellent and well-established processes that position the brand day after day as a world leader in the climbing industry and allow the company to move ever closer to the needs and habits of consumers.

Thanks to a partnership with the gyms Arkose Patin and Climb Up Aubervilliers, players in the indoor climbing industry recognized on the Parisian scene, La Maison La Sportiva will create a schedule of events aimed at all enthusiasts. Specifically, from August 5 to 10, activities will enliven Arkose Gymnasium, then move from August 11 to 14 to Climb Up.


Nearly 100 years of history have passed since the creation of La Sportiva in 1928 by shoemaker Narciso Delladio of Tesero, in Val di Fiemme, Dolomites. This small workshop, called “La Calzoleria Sportiva,” has evolved over nearly a century to become the world’s leading brand in the climbing, ski mountaineering, trail running and high mountain sectors. Thanks to a production of shoes and technical clothing entirely conceived and developed in the mountains of Trentino, La Sportiva is now synonymous with excellence and performance.

Four generations of the Delladio family, represented by CEO Lorenzo Delladio, by their daughter Giulia and their son Francesco, have perpetuated the tradition of the family business to the success it has achieved today: more than 500 employees, a turnover of more than 200,000,000 euros as of 2023, and a 15,000 sq. m. factory dedicated to the production of climbing shoes and mountaineering footwear.
