Who we are

The Ottica Urbani shop was opened in San Marco, in the Bocca di Piazza corner, already in 1952 and from the beginning it has become, due to the centrality of its position and the cordiality of its personnel, a point of reference for the Venice “Dolce Vita" (sweet life). Here all eye-sight necessities of many famous members of the intellectual and cultural life were cared for: Hemingway, Music,Vedova and the architect Carlo Scarpa. Already then, tips and suggestions were accepted for the creation of personalised frames and sun-glasses, following the suggestions of these glamorous customers.

Then the Sixties came and the shop kept on staying close to the world of art launching and distributing, for example, the "Optical" line of sun-glasses, inspired by the famous decorative movement based on the alternation of white and black. And so, up to the present time, the shop has even more consolidated its trend of researching, through design and materials for its lines, the elegant originality that is today a trademark.

During the Sixties, Ottica Urbani opened its second retail in Lido di Venezia, which has always been a fashionable and bathing resort of Venice. This shop is located in the main street, just a few steps away from the famous Des Bains Hotel, and each year is frequented, in addition to the numerous tourists, also by famous movie stars, who meet for the International Film Festival. This shop hosts studies, elaborations and experimentations of new colour combinations and new details of Urbani glasses: also, accessories and elements for glasses are created, uniting the curiosity for fashion trends and the uniqueness of the hand-crafted product.

The continuous upgrade of ophtalmic technologies allows in fact to propose softer lenses, with anti-scratch and anti-reflection treatments, colourings in the most fashionable tones and extremely comfortable multi-focal lenses. Ottica Urbani also offers its customers the opportunity of not simply having a help in sight, but also a unique and personalised object based on the individual needs and aesthetic propensity.
