Borsalino City

Borsalino headwear and film history go hand in hand.  The 2015 documentary BORSALINO CITY is being released in an English version. Director Enrica Viola’s work weaves the story of  how 163 years ago Giuseppe Borsalino founded a hat atelier in Alessandria, Italy to becoming iconic parts of film history. 

His style legacy has been worn by in cinema masterpieces including:  “81/2” and “Breathless”.  Can any cinephile imagine Boagart without the  hat in the final scene of “Casablanca”?

I have a small collection of Borsalino Hats in my closet. Loved! Each piece gets recognised by those in the know.
