The Casa Alitalia
project is dedicated to hospitality and offers a range of comforts to frequent flyers
in the context of the Flagship Lounges
: elegant and comfortable rooms welcome guests from around the world and make them feel as if they were in a typical Italian home.
Recently inaugurated, the Flagship Lounges of the Rome Fiumicino and Milan Malpensa airports
are a project by the Alitalia staff, carried out by the internationally renowned architect, Marco Piva
.Grottini Retail Environments
was the supporting partner of the entire technical and operational implementation, in collaboration with Poltrona Frau
which supplied leather and armchairs.
The Rome Fiumicino airport Lounge covers an area of about 800 square meters, with over 115 seats for guests. An environment that, while retaining features of sophistication and elegance
, evokes the cozy atmosphere of a private home.
Therefore, access to the lounge evokes the shape of a door of an Italian building, welcoming passengers into a cozy and quiet space which takes them away from the chaos of the airport.
Particular attention has been paid to the selection of materials and furnishings, an expression of the best Italian handcrafted excellence
: from the Trani Serpeggiante marble
used for the hand-carved reception desk to the Eramosa marble
tables and walls with handcrafted finishings.
"With Casa Alitalia we will showcase Italian excellence and style in an elegant yet relaxed setting, where a warm welcome with attention to details will make our guests from all over the world feel as they were in a typical Italian home," said the CEO Cramer Ball. "The opening of these new lounges is a further step in the re-launch plan of our ground and in-flight services. We aim to become the best airline in Europe, and to achieve this we must ensure excellent service for our passengers before, during and after their flights.
