Apple premiered Apple Piazza Liberty, a new retail location that will revitalize a piazza in the center of Milan. The project, which includes both a grand public plaza and a store below, brings Apple’s latest retail design to Italy for the first time.
Just off the Corso Vittorio Emanuele, one of the most popular pedestrian streets in Milan, visitors will first see a dramatic glass fountain that serves as the entrance to the store and a backdrop to the large outdoor amphitheater. The piazza, clad in Beola Grigia, a stone used throughout Milan, is open to the public 24 hours a day and will host special events year-round amongst 14 Gleditsia Sunburst trees planted in the area.
Apple Piazza Liberty opens Thursday, July 26, at 5 pm.
