In 1917, the photographer and owner of the company Berry Opticians started to manufacture technically advanced glasses, in order to satisfy the demands of pilots and sports drivers; in terms of comfort, protection and optimal visibility. This first model became known as the “Protector” model. After the development of the “Protector”, he decided to create truly revolutionary sunglasses in terms of quality and encase of wear, leading to the creation of the brand Persol. The name Persol comes from "Per il sole" meaning "for the sun". Today, the brand is a successful company that manufactures sunglasses in stylish design and high quality.
