Apple planning ‘innovative’ flagship retail store in Milan, Italy

Apple is planning “one of the most innovative and technological Apple Stores in the world” in Milan, Italy, notes 9to5Mac, quoting a local report.

Apple’s plans depict an outdoor amphitheater where it plans to host culturally focused events throughout the year. In fact, the Cupertino, California-based company has purportedly already agreed to host eight public events per year with potential for at least an additional 4 events per year.

Apple’s amphitheater is said to be “the heart of the square.” The entrance of the store will be marked by a glass screen made from a waterfall. The interior is also said to be fully modernized and redesigned, notes 9to5Mac.

Apple currently has 490 retail stores in 22 countries and an online store available in 39 countries.
