I couldn’t find ever perfect Hat, in my homeland then, Idiscovered a special processing of this accessory.
A brand synonymous with elegance and quality. A search for materials, the discovery of the “Museum of the hat” of the Marches, my inspiration. The brand takes its name from the family residence called “Montegallo”.

Alice Montegallo: A country life takes place in Montegallo, where it is unthinkable to leave the house without a hat. Montegallo is a small fraction of Osimo in the province of Ancona, a small “county”. A place full of traditions.
Rftv: How does the creative process of the “Montegallo” brand?
Alice Montegallo: Personally I love wearing hats before creating. The creative process comes from understanding the need of the hat, to make it a functional accessory. The attention to detail is important for Montegallo. The hat must be perfect.
Rftv:To whom and to what is Alice inspired by the creation of her hats?
Alice Montegallo: The inspiration is given by classical cinematography and style icons of the past.
Wearing a hat is good and then it is also synonymous with elegance. The hat exposes and protects, creates mystery. “I love the hat” is the most beautiful sentence. Every person has his hat. It’s a matter of habits, our grandparents wore it and did not do a school of behavior. Take a hat and wear it.
Fashion is made of harmony with a pinch of extravagance.
