The brand was founded in 2019 as a result of Federico's reflection on his own origins. The runway looks are enveloped in a nostalgic and sentimental atmosphere, bringing forth the romantic essence of the history and culture of Romagna.

Profound connections with his homeland constitute a significant part of the brand's DNA, despite Federico initially feeling the need to escape and go far away. "I was born in the wrong place," he would repeat to his mom at the age of three, demonstrating the desire to break free.

Through his studies and the beginning of his career in fashion, he leaves home, living between Milan, Osaka, and New York, realizing his dream. However, he soon feels the need to return home. "At some point, I felt the need to come back, not only to my land but generally to all those values that had been transmitted to me."

From this, the FEDERICO CINA project is born.


Federico made his debut with the project bearing his name at AltaRoma in 2019 with the brand's first runway show. The collection, Romagna Mia, is a reflection on his own origins. In the same year, the young designer won the Who's on Next competition, receiving not only recognition but also the Franca Sozzani Award. In 2021, he was selected as a finalist for the LVMH Prize, and the following year, Federico landed in Milan with the brand's first runway show during Fashion Week. The collection is titled Ball'Era 77, once again paying homage to his homeland.



The concept of humanity places the individual, their emotions, and memories at the center, advocating a return to simple and genuine beauty.



The brand's craftsmanship is represented by the correlation between passion and tradition, a continuous dialogue between the past and the present, old and new generations. The goal is to promote craftsmanship and, at the same time, reinterpret traditional silhouettes.



Understood not only as the use of sustainable elements, but for the brand, sustainability means promoting and creating opportunities within the working environment, considering human and relational qualities. It involves developing the Romagna ecosystem and all the districts Involved.


The “Grape”, a distinctive symbol of the brand, evokes peasant culture and refers to ancient Romagna prints created with 17th-century artisan techniques.This handmade art form has its roots in rural simplicity. The colors derived from rust, the use of wood molds, and canvases made from locally cultivated hemp are the defining features that make the Romagnola Print truly unique and distinctive. Typically, these prints were applied to tablecloths used by mothers for traditional Sunday lunches in Romagna. The brand has elevated and reinterpreted these designs as a tribute to the enduring values they represent.


Since the 17th century, with the creation of the Mangano, a special still-functional machine used to stretch and press canvases, the Marchi family is dedicated daily to renewing the ancient art of printing. The workshop of the old print shop, in fact, prints exceptionally high-quality canvases for all the families in Romagna with passion, dedication, and hard work.

The special collaboration with the Marchi print shop arises from the desire to bring the design of luxury clothing closer to the ancient art of Romagnola Print, experimenting with new methods and ways to honor this technique, creating garments that inspire and endure over time.
