This Il Centro shopping centres’ chosen solution for lighting was Graziadio GLS (25A 2P and 4P) and power distribution using Graziadio GDA (100-160-250-400-500A). The centre opened in April 2016 with an opening day a crowd of over 350,000 people keen to visit this huge full-service supermarket and its over 200 shops and boutiques. Il Centro includes the first LEGO flagship store in Italy, Primark (with its widest shopping area in Italy), the first H&M home, Zara, an Illy Cafe and over 20 food outlets.
The building was designed by architects Davide Padoa, Michele de Lucchi and Arnaldo Zappa, who took inspiration from London’s Covent Garden, they declared. Porches and gardens, doorways, streets and buildings have been integrated into the design, in order to enhance the shopping experience.
