Vicolungo The Style Outlets announces opening of “ANTONINO, il Banco di Cannavacciuolo”

NEINVER and the Cannavacciuolo Group have signed an agreement for the opening of a new smart gourmet space with Chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo’s products.

NEINVER, a leading investor, developer and operator in the European outlet centre industry, will open a new “smart gourmet” space created by the internationally renowned Chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo at Vicolungo The Style Outlets, in Italy. This new exclusive opening, which will open in May 2019, marks another milestone in the food and beverage strategy of the centre, which has been adding  more premium offerings in recent months.

The new space, “ANTONINO, il Banco di Cannavacciuolo”, will open in May in the main square of the outlet centre. Inspired by the Neapolitan tradition, it will offer visitors a selection of gourmet products in a smart and also “on the go” version including the famous fried pizza, eggplant parmigiana, or the mozzarella in a carriage. Visitors will also have the opportunity to buy the Chef’s iconic products, already available on his online shop at shop.antoninocannavacciuolo.it. The new “smart gourmet” point will offer the Chef’s products for take-away or to eat in an informal area with designer tables and seats.

This new opening will further strengthen the outlet centre’s exclusive and diverse food offer that has recently added the premium Roadhouse Meatery, a Calavera Mexican restaurant, the Signorvino wine shop and restaurant, and Tramè, a Venetian sandwich shop. NEINVER thus continues its strategy of providing the outlet centres with the best environments, high-quality services and a compelling food and beverage offer to complement its excellent brand mix.

Vicolungo The Style Outlets, located near Milan, welcomes 4 million shoppers every year who visit 150 boutiques of major international brands in over 34,000 sq m of retail space. The centre, which has been expanded twice due to its growing success, will complete a €9 million renovation by the end of the year, led by the prestigious international architecture studio Chapman Taylor. Remodelling works include the renovation of the main square, the canopies and the street furniture, among others.
