FOTO VENETA OTTICA Galleria&Friends

 

Since 1931 the small glass museum from Seicento to today. 

New Old Style with glasses and historical frames of inestimable value on sale and on show to look for new and fashionable ways in the tradition. Enthusiasts call it "the small museum": wooden shelves, a wonderful floor and inside the windows an incredible amount of priceless historical memorabilia. The oldest eyewear dates back to the seventeenth century, but between drawers and display cases you can find pieces from the eighteenth, nineteenth centuries, of every single decade of the twentieth century, up to the magnificent sixties in which design multiplied the models of the frames and developed material research. Hidden or exhibited in the historic shop of the Bisello family there are thousands of glasses that tell the evolution of the costume with unique collector's items, some only on display, others for sale or for rent for films, advertising, fashion shows, shooting.

Foto Veneta Ottica has chosen to focus on the New Old Stock, that is vintage glasses never worn, kept since the grandfather of the current manager, Gabriele Bisello, opened the business in 1931. It was born as a shop-house, with the home behind the store, then sold. From here, everyone, private individuals, enthusiasts and companies, who often ask for advice from Emanuele Bisello, see models of frames from past centuries to find new ways of fashion in the tradition.
