The History of Bacca Cappelleria
The Cappelleria Bacca is an ancient and charming shop of elegant hats and accessories for men and women that dates back to 1823, when the municipality of Rovereto granted the sales license to Giovanni Bacca .
Almost 200 years have passed since then for one of the oldest hat shops in Italy.
Originally the shop consisted of two rooms; now the only one still in business preserves the floor and most of the original wooden furniture.
The atmosphere inside has remained that of the past, thanks to the presence of numerous antique furniture that still serves as a backdrop to the refined selection of men's and women's hats and accessories, personally curated by Sonia.
In fact, Sonia Monti is the representative of the 5th generation who has successfully managed the Cappelleria over the years.
Offering high quality hats has always been the family mission, in fact Sonia personally selects all the items present, turning her attention to the latest fashion trends but also to the great classics of both Italian and foreign production, offering customers the highest quality items. .
We think that, as never before, buying a hat needs personalized advice that can from time to time adapt to the shape of the face, age and personal tastes of those who buy. All obviously without the inevitable courtesy and kindness that completes the offer of our refined shop.
The same shopping experience that we want to transfer to our online store of hats and accessories for the outfit, offering the best products for sale and advising those who request it the most suitable hat for their person.

A unique historical workshop full of art
The exterior of the Cappelleria Bacca shop is embellished with a sculptural work of art created by the famous futurist artist Fortunato Depero (1892-1960), a longtime family friend.
The two Caryatids on either side of the shop entrance were built during the early 1900s to decorate the important Trentino business.
Their presence embodies a strong attraction for the many tourists who arrive in Rovereto and cross the historic center, walking from the Mart (the famous Museum of modern and contemporary art) the road that also leads to the recently restored Casa Museo di Depero.
Fortunato Depero was a great friend of the descendant of the Toni Bacca family and contrary to what one might think, he was an avid gambler.
In fact, it was precisely this that, during a game, led him to go into debt with the Bacca family, forcing him to pay them back through two of his works, those caryatids that are located right on the main facade of the aforementioned chapel.
The latter, however, are not the only works that the family has received from the artist, in fact he also gave them one of the few copies of the famous “bolted” with a dedication and signature.
