About the Brand
Antica Barbieria Colla is the most famous barbershop in Milan, known for its prestige, for its traditions and widely recommended by its Italian and International clientele.
Founded by Dino Colla in 1904, the Barbershop is the place to seek hair, beard and mustaches treatment as well as to meet famous people. Well known political figures, as well as show business people, are its regular customers: an extremely attractive and sought after place to be at.
Located in the old and picturesque setting of Via Gerolamo Morone, in the heart of Milan close to La Scala, the shop retains the atmosphere of the beginning of the last century. Having a shave or getting one’s mustache and hair cut at the Barbershop, means for many Milan dwellers an essential experience, a tradition to pass on to their children in a setting that evokes the past, thanks to the vintage furnishings and accessories exposed here and there.
When entering the store one has the impression of traveling through time into a world where attention to the customer and detailed care are sacred and inviolable values.
Shaving at the Barbershop is a ritual of great charm: a warm towel, pre-shave cream, animal hairbrush, razor blade that caresses the skin without irritating it, another cream, another towel, and enormous attention during all phases of the process, a truly attentive service.
The products used in the shop are created especially for skin treatments. They are prepared following an ancient tradition passed on from owner to owner.
Until recently, such products were used in the Barbershop primarily. The strong demand by customers and friends motivated Francesca Bompieri, Franco’s daughter, to make her marketing experience available to the family business with the creation of an exclusive line of products for hair and face called “Antica Barbieria Colla”.
