10 million Euro regeneration for the CinecittàDue shopping centre in Rome

Chapman Taylor has been commissioned to restyle and enhance the CinecittàDue shopping centre, a historic mall in Rome, Italy. Opening in 1988, CinecittàDue was the first shopping mall in Rome and one of the first in Italy.

With a total investment of around 10 million euros, the project will provide more than just a facelift, the objective is to enhance, integrate and adapt the centre's offer, transforming it into a multifunctional modern retail and leisure destination.

When complete, the revitalised venue will host retail, cutting-edge F&B, leisure services and spaces for socialising.

Architect Victorio Caponetto, explains, “CinecittàDue was born 34 years ago, at a time when shopping centres were completely new to the Italian market and unproven at the time. It was a courageous investment, that paid off as the centre was a great success. Customer expectations have however changed since the shopping centre first opened its doors. We have been commissioned by our client, Silvano Toti Holdings, to help modernise, add additional leisure uses, and transform CinecittàDue to ensure its continued success in the future".

The restyling works have already started and will proceed in phases, both inside and outside the shopping centre. The completion of the interventions is scheduled for the end of 2023.
