Apple today previewed Apple Via del Corso, the newest retail location nestled in one of Rome’s most vibrant areas. As the 17th store to open in Italy, Apple Via del Corso will serve as an all-new, centrally located space for Apple team members to provide best-in-class service and support to the local community. The store preserves the grand Palazzo Marignoli, paying homage to Rome’s rich history of art and culture, and making it one of Apple’s most significant restoration projects.
Just look at the images embedded in the linked post. This is a spectacular Apple Store, blending beautifully into ancient surroundings.
My favorite part of all is the video, about halfway down that gives you a bit of a guided tour through the store. This is definitely on my bucket list.
