ANTICA BARBIERIA COLLA 1904

Antica Barbieria Colla is the most famous barber shop in Milan. It’s known for prestige, traditions and being widely recommended by its Italian and International clientele. Founded by Dino Colla in 1904, the barbershop is Italy’s top destination for those seeking hair, beard, and moustache treatments.

Located in the historical and picturesque setting of Via Gerolamo Morone in the heart of Milan, the shop prides itself on retaining the atmosphere of the early 20th century. For patrons of the barbershop seeking a shave or haircut, it is an essential experience and a tradition to pass on to their children in a setting that evoke the past. When entering the shop, one has the impression of travelling back in time to 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 cloth, pre-shave cream, animal hairbrush, a razor blade that caresses the skin without irritation, another cream, and enormous attention during all phases of the process: a truly attentive service. Under the leadership of its current owner Franco Bompieri, who has been working in the same historical shop since 1949, the “Antica Barbieria Colla” has consolidated its prestige. As well as providing impeccable haircuts and shaves, Mr. Bompieri is also a well-known author of several books.

The products used by Antica Barbieria Colla are created especially for treatment of the skin. They are prepared following an ancient tradition passed on from owner to owner. Until recently, such products were only available at the barbershop, however 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”.

Nothing has been left to coincidence: the choice of colors, the wrapping materials (prepared one by one), and the wraps are designed in collaboration with choice Italian companies known for their quality. The products and fragrances of the original recipe are unique – herbal conditioner, egg and rum shampoo, apricot hull aftershave, and sweet almond oil cream soap – all become a real sensorial experience. Since lines of shampoos for different types of scalps, a lotion for massaging the skin, a soothing aftershave, an ultra-softening balm, the soap and travel soap. These were the first products launched on to the market, the beginning of continued research aimed at making the product line larger and able to cater to the needs of the beard and hair of every consumer. The “Antica Barbieria Colla” strives to ensure that the traditions of its history live, it preserves the craft and the art of its founder, it perpetuates with passion of the old tradition of hair care and shaving. And, at the same time, makes use of modern means of communication and dissemination, dedicating special attention to international clientele.
