What makes your store a unique place in Liguria?
Ottica Foppa is a concept store born 30 years ago in Bergamo province and still remains so important for other Ottica Foppa shops. The store located in Alassio is the last one, started from the collaboration between Mario Canegallo and Foppa family who on the 1st may 2015 have launched the new Ligurian store. Our philosophy tends to become a reference point of this area for searching every kind of glasses, from unique pieces manually operated by small factories to items created by the most fashionable and well-know brands.
