Persol was founded in 1917 in Turin by the photographer and optician Giuseppe Ratti. His frames were initially conceived in order to meet the demands of racing car drivers and pilots.
At the end of the thirties, Persol obtained a patent for Meflecto, the very first system of flexible arms for eyewear in the world.
But it was in 1957 that this Turin brand really took off. Its model 649, designed specifically for tram drivers in Turin became a strong hallmark and the brand signature.
A large number of film stars adopted them: Steve Mc Queen, Greta Garbo, Ornella Mutti, etc.
The mineral lenses of Person glasses are of excellent quality and are available in brown or grey-green, polarised or non-polarised.
