The boutique was founded in 1964 in a nineteenth-century building in via della Libertà 5, Palermo.
Torregrossa boasts a unique portfolio of exclusive and luxury fashion brands, going through decades and trends without ever giving up the taste for elegance.
Designed in 1964 by architect Collura, the boutique saw the collections of Mila Schon, Irene Galitzine, Lancetti and André Laug. In the seventies, after the renovation by architect Rodolfo Loffredo, the most innovative fashion trends found their place in the store: Azzedine Alaia, Anne Marie Beretta, Jean Paul Gaultier, Issey Miyake, Claude Montana and Thierry Mugler.
The boutique was renovated by the architect Piero Pinto, regaining the original volumes of nineteenth-century architecture. In the eighties, the boutique hosted the new rising stars of fashion: Gianfranco Ferré, Romeo Gigli, Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garçons.
In 1992 the store expanded and renewed itself, thanks to another project by architect Piero Pinto. A large corner was entirely dedicated to the maison Chanel, while brands such as Prada, Jil Sander and Dries Van Noten were hosted in the boutique.
Torregrossa was renewed once again during the first decade of 2000. The refurbishment of the interiors, designed by the Milanese architect Piero Pinto, was presented with one of the most prestigious brands, Christian Dior. The new concept revolutionized the store's spaces, giving it a modern and innovative image, always respecting the philosophy of the boutique: combining the luxury and elegance of major fashion brands with the search for new talents.
From urban corner to digital shop, the boutique is also online with the selections curated by Silvana Maltese Torregrossa and Marina Torregrossa.
