Apple will open the Piazza del Liberty Apple Retail store in Milan “soon,” according to AppleInsider. First announced in January, it’s described as “one of the most innovative and technological Apple Stores in the world.”
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.
With the opening of the store, Apple will have 498 retail stores in 22 countries and an online store available in 39 countries.
