Hausmann and Co. Boutiques: history and excellence between Via del Babuino and Via del Corso.
Via del Babuino is one of the most elegant streets in Rome. It welcomes important period buildings and connects two of the most famous and prestigious squares in the city: Piazza del Popolo and Piazza di Spagna.
It is a jewel rich in history with a contemporary soul, emblem of the most exclusive shopping in the Eternal City, together with the nearby Via dei Condotti.
Its name derives from the Silenus fountain, a figure later renamed “Babuino”, because of its unusual appearance. This well-known monument is located very close to the Hausmann & Co. multi-brand Boutique.
Located at number 63, it offers the most prestigious brands of the world’s fine watchmaking, such as Rolex, Cartier, F.P. Journe, A. Lange & Sohne, Vacheron Constantin, Breguet, Blancpain and many others.
A location that, as per the interiors and the selection of the watch Brands distributed, perfectly fits the refined soul of Via del Babuino and its being, at the same time, a modern symbol of quality and excellence.
A little further on, exiting the Rione Campo Marzio through the characteristic Roman “vicoli”, you reach the historical venue of Hausmann & Co., located in via del Corso 406.
The history of watchmaking, since 1891, has passed through here with the protagonists of the time: from the roaring 1920s to the glories of the Dolce Vita, going as far as today. A continuous succession of illustrious guests, thanks also to the central location of the Boutique, walking distance from the Parliament building.
The historic venue in Via del Corso 406 is currently closed for renovation.
