When Lucio Enrico Di Nardo, expert collector and lover of objects of art, began his career in optics in 1956, he never imagined that his descendants would transform it into an artisan eyewear business, whose production, by virtue of long experience, has allowed it to combine aesthetics with visual function.
Each piece, made from the best materials available on the market and carefully hand finished in full respect of the “Made in Italy” tradition, draws its uniqueness and originality from the vast historical collection by which the Di Nardo Family and his colleagues were inspired.
The models are slightly vintage and retro in style and are distinguished by the extreme distinctiveness of their design and the use of different materials such as wood, horn, leather and 18Kt gold. L’Antica Occhialeria also has a wide selection of authentic antique glasses, and designs and produces exclusive custom models for clients with the most discriminating taste.
