Inspired by a type identification request over at Typography.guru.
During developement, the tool has taken over, also helped by the scarcity of letters available in the original, making the design more sans than serif, and with strong MICR vibes in some places.
The name means "shoe shop" (also shoe repair or shoe making) in Italian.
At the moment the language coverage is limited to Western Europe.
I've been wanting to do this kind of font for ages, think of it as a soft square or a hard circle. Since it's been so long, I can't really remember the exact source of inspiration, but I do remember it had something to do with kix and his work.
The ability to kern now has obviously made the spacing better than it would have been otherwise. Thanks, Rob.
A stout, slab serif, large countered, heavy sided, pixel font.
