“A craft ”

Antica Barberia Giacalone
Reviewed 6 July 2016 via mobile

I foregone shaving for days. In anticipation of experiencing this fellow's work. Let me say he is a master at what he does. I felt care and time taken on me. Committed to attention to detail and no cutting corners, it was really an experience from an era of long ago. Skilled with the razor he made my face smooth as ...and hold on to something when that aftershave goes on.
Great place and fabulous decor from the early part of the last century. I enjoyed searching for it in the tight back streets of Genoa. Highly recommended.

Found this little cool barber shop, after wandering the narrow streets of Genova. It was quite a wait to get in the chair, but the shave was surely great and worth the wait and done with good handcraft from a barber who knows his metier.

This barbershop is hidden in the narrow Genova street but once you find it you'll be very satisfied. It is very small but very beautiful. Definetely a place to stop by.

I picked up on this place through the National Trust website and their reciprocal agreements with their equivalent (FIA, I think) in Italy As a big fan of Art Deco this was stunningly good - just a tiny barbers shop in the backstreets of Genoa's old city. It appeared closed but we knocked and the gentleman inside was more than pleased to let us in and take photos. Fabulous
