JOHANNESBURG

May 2016. Rome meets Africa: in the newly opened Johannesburg’s store, the Mediterranean origins and Italian touch pervade the space, like in a virtual journey in the eternal city. A time travel in 2700 years of Roman inspiration

MOSCOW

February 2016. Bulgari announces the opening of a new boutique in Moscow in Petrovka Street featuring the new architectural design concept which Peter Marino specially developed for Bulgari. From Rome to Moscow: following the renovation of the historical Roman flagship in 2014, in which a delicate transformation of the existing historical store was accomplished, the new architectural concept has been first rolled out in the new boutique in Gum Department Store, and then evolved and magnified in the brand new flagship in Petrovka.

LONDON

February 2016. Bulgari announces the reopening of the London flagship in New Bond Street, featuring the new architectural design concept which Peter Marino specially developed for Bulgari. Following the renovation of the historical Roman flagship in 2014, in which a delicate transformation of the existing historical store was accomplished, many of the brand’s signature architectural elements are mirrored and evolved within this new space. Here the Peter Marino concept draws on its Mediterranean origins and Roman traditions and emphasises Italian classicism as interpreted in the English architecture.  Entering the London New Bond boutique is a discovery, a walk in the city of Rome, kissed by the sunlight, with a central main promenade which opens up the view to spectacular rooms. A sapient interplay between old and new, innovation and tradition, which is the core of Bulgari’s eclectic style
