Lens after lens, eyewear after eyewear and with the support of my children, Luca and Andrea, today Ottica Foppa has become a well-known and appreciated reality not only in the Bergamo province.

To be combined with your outfit, sunglasses are now a mix of research and design and for this reason customers go beyond the most famous fashion brands but are looking for unique eyewear, perhaps a limited edition, and for some years they have wanted to wear exclusive brands such as Linda Farrow, Mykita, Kuboraum or Cazal».
