Il Cappellaio Matto (The Mad Hat Maker)


Made in Sicily

Hats, hats, hats - hats from Il Cappellaio Matto Filippo Velardi, the Mad Hat Maker.

A hat made to measure is the order of the day, and Filippo Velardi is hear to help you.

On the famous Via Vittorio Emanuele in Palermo, Filippo runs this small shop where he sells his handmade hats in all shapes, sizes and colours.

For years Filippo has been tailor - making hats to fit all sizes of heads. Although many different hats are catered for, it is the famous Sicilian Coppola that is their expertise.

Stop by, have a look and maybe you'll turn home with your very personal Sicily souvenir.
