We would like to announce and share an important milestone in our continued growth.
Ci Gusta, after several openings over the last few years and in different parts of the globe, is returning to its home, the charming city of Reggio Emilia, through a sure-fire operation.
In fact, one of Ci Gusta’s next planned openings for 2023 will take place in the brand new Il Mercato Eat &Meet Market, a stunning location that was recently opened in the Emilian city, our birthplace in 2011.
This new space has been renovated by the Portuguese company Sonae Sierra, an internationally active firm that is involved in prestigious projects and successfully manages numerous shopping centers throughout Europe.
On April 20, the historic Galleria Centrale, known to all citizens of Reggio Emilia as Mercato Coperto, reopened to the public through a “soft opening” operation: it is, in fact, a large building dating back to 1927, which has crossed several decades with its monumental charm, serving as a local food market, shopping arcade, large clothing store until today with its redevelopment precisely into the sumptuous Eat&Meet Market.
The historic building, which has been completely renovated and upgraded, will house several venues located around the perimeter of the building, while in the center will be a common area where it will be possible to sit and enjoy the dishes on offer or simply relax.
In this very location Ci Gusta will soon open, bringing the goodness of its artisanal gelato and pastries, exactly in the heart of Reggio Emilia’s historic center.
Those who come to visit us will also be able to rest in the cafeteria area where we will serve coffee, cappuccinos, crepes, our famous Cafffettone and many specialty baked pastries.
The Ci Gusta venue will rise in a strategic location within the Galleria, as it will overlook Piazza Scapinelli, a space that will host many musical and cultural events, especially in the evening.
