Antonia is located in the heart of Riccione, and it is considered one of the most important and well-known multi-brand boutiques in Italy that offers womenswear exclusive brands.
Antonia Manaresi opened Antonia Boutique in the spring of 1974 in Galleria Viscardi, Viale Ceccarini in Riccione.
The small shop was fully furnished with “Vivai del Sud” bamboo furniture, presenting the Italian and international main fashion lines: Jean Paul Gaultier, Krizia, Iceberg, Jil Sander and, after few seasons, also the first creations of emerging designers such as Dolce & Gabbana and Prada.
It was the golden era of fashion, where first and loyal customers every evening tried and bought exclusive dresses to show off during the happy hour in Viale Ceccarini.
Anna Oxa, Jerry Calà, Mina, Gianni Morandi, Corrado and, more recently, Bobo Vieri, Linus and Albertino, Renato Zero, Marco Materazzi, Elisabetta Canalis, Vanessa Incontrada, Paolo Rossi, Martina Colombari and Alessandro Costacurta are just some of their VIP customers.
After 35 years, Antonia is still one of the most important and popular multi-brand stores in Italy and it is part of the network The Best Shops of the Italian Chamber of Fashion.
Today Antonia is in Viale Dante in the center of Riccione, a new location of 450 sqm on two levels, inside an early XX century building.
