On Wednesday 20th April, Davide Padoa - CEO of Design International, gave a private tour of the Il Centro Shopping Center, which opened to the public on 14th April. Speaking exclusively to a select group of journalists, Davide explained some of the secrets behind his design. Il Centro is located on the former site of Alfa Romeo in Milan, between Malpensa airport, Lake Maggiore, Lake Como and Switzerland.
On the opening day of Il Centro, Davide Padoa has commented: "IL CENTRO has transformed the old site of Alfa Romeo from a factory of cars to a factory of experiences, with the largest number of brands ever realised in Italy within a new, larger, porous generation of Malls, where indoor and outdoor spaces live in synchrony. Drawing IL CENTRO was like painting a town, with the habits and tastes of its citizens in mind."
