Rizzoli Library, Milan

The Rizzoli library in the Galleria in Milan

Newfloor S.r.l as calcium sulphate core and natural wood covering

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is one of the most famous symbols of Milan – built in the second half of the 19th century, it’s considered one of the first shopping centers in the world for the presence of shops and restaurants. It’s a commercial street, a two-arm cross that connects Piazza Duomo with Piazza della Scala. In the years it has become a destination of tourists who love taking photos under the central dome.

In the Galleria there are many shops of the most famous fashion brands like Versace, Gucci and Louis Vuitton, but there’s also a cultural corner thanks to the Rizzoli bookstore, an Italian publishing house of the Mondadori group.

The Rizzoli bookstore represents a place to relax, thanks to the renovation of the last years, dedicated to improve the elegance and brightness of the bookstore, not forgetting the passion for books and tradition.

For Newfloor it was a pleasure to give its contribution to realize this project. For these 600sqm we have proposed a raised floor with a core of high density calcium sulphate and a thickness of 30mm; for the top covering we used a natural wood specially chosen by our customer for this project.
