Left abandoned for fifteen years after the wartime bombing, the future Puccio footwear store had hosted a number of activities (millinery, barber etc.). Agostino Puccio remodeled it to make it his own shoe store in Via Santa Teresa, Turin. The store dates back to 1885 (wooden entrance included) and is now listed as one of the historic Turin's shops.

Il negozio di calzature Puccio in via S.Teresa a Torino è classificato fra i negozi storici torinesi, dal momento che le sue origini e l‘ingresso in legno risalgono addirittura al 1885. All’epoca era un negozio di cappelli. La configurazione attuale risale al 1961 e all’attività di Agostino Puccio, che lo ristrutturò dopo una quindicina di anni di abbandono dovuto ai danneggiamenti provocati dai bombardamenti in tempo di guerra.
