Barberino Designer Outlet has been projected to be not only a shopping centre with more than 100 stores of the best brands with discounted prices, but also to be a lovely place where to make a day-trip. The architecture has been planned to emplace a typical Florentine village from the Renaissance. It is really easy to note the influence of the ceramics of Della Robbia, the architecture of Piazza degli Innocenti in Florence, the Renaissance villas around Florence in the area of Barberino, and the early 15th century “Palazzi” (buildings) in the city.
The project includes either a river, the Sieve which passes through the whole village – certainly an enviable project of engineering and infrastructure of the company McArthurGlen, that manages the place. The project reflects a real urban project, divided into different buildings and houses, to create a 25 thousand square metres of a fantasy town, including two large squares surrounded by arcades and bridges which cross the river Sieve. Either the banks of the river have been inspired by the Arno in the centre of Florence – there are two pedestrian avenues that run along both banks.
Barberino Designer Outlet offers a wide range of services including: Children’s play area; Cash dispenser and bank; Toilets / disabled toilets / baby changing facilities; Public telephones; Information office; 5 eating places (Borgo Cafè, il Torracchione, Tuscan Food, Ca’Puccino, Caffè Mediceo); Over 2,000 free parking places.
Barberino Designer is located in the beautiful natural environment of the “Sieve” Valley, close to the A1 toll of Barberino di Mugello – which makes it easily reachable by car (from Florence is less than half an hour).
