Ottica Galuzzi :: History

more than forty years of history!

The story of Ottica Galuzzi began in 1975, the foundation year.
Ottica Galuzzi was born in Corso Lodi, a street two kilometres far from the center of the city. In 1992, the shop moved in a bigger location; the move of only 50 meters helped the shop to become a landmark for residents and people living in other Milan areas.

interior design lovers

In 2017 Ottica Galuzzi changed furniture to gain more space.
The shop is characterized by a supporting column (made of granite), that stands out exactly in the middle of the room. In 2017, some walls were painted to remind the rough texture of the column and a part of furniture was changed to show more modern materials.
