Glasses are worn in the middle of the face. Which means that their size, shape and colour must be chosen in precisely the right way in order to harmonize perfectly with the elements that are already there. Andrea De Zordi and Eleonora Newton can see immediately what suits each individual face. They take a hands-on approach – manu propria – to finding the right choice for their customers. The two opticians design eyewear from high-quality Italian acetate. The glass of Prosecco or the cup of coffee that is served while exchanging ideas is entirely in the style of our neighbours to the South. The colourful, fashionable collection is displayed in a small dairy dating back to the fifties, an exclusive outlet which guarantees that not many people around the world are wearing the same glasses. If you want to be even more exclusive, you can choose a custom-made pair. Spectacles by renowned names, unique vintage creations, sunglasses – the fashion object non plus ultra – together with matching accessories complete the collection. What’s more, this year this unique and very pleasing boutique is celebrating a small anniversary: its third.
