Apple Store inaugurated in the Via Rizzoli complex in downtown Bologna

Located in the property owned by IGD, the Apple Store in Bologna is Italy’s eighth and the first in a historic city center

IGD – Immobiliare Grande Distribuzione S.p.A., Italy’s leading owner and manager of retail shopping centers (listed in the STAR segment of the Milan Stock Exchange), is pleased to announce the inauguration of an Apple Store at its Via Rizzoli complex in the heart of historic Bologna.

Until now, all Apple Stores in Italy have been located at suburban or peripheral malls, never in a city center.

Inauguration day on Saturday, 17 September attracted throngs of shoppers, with hundreds of people lining up eagerly for entrance to the new Apple Store.

The IGD Group is thrilled with this achievement, a hallmark of its new “city center” project, involving the purchase of buildings in the historic districts of some major Italian cities.
