Looking for a nice Shopping Mall + an interesting archeological area walking distance from Aurelia Residence?
Aura Shopping Center is the answer.
Not far from the Vatican City, the latest and trendy retail destination in the heart of Rome is the Aura Valle Aurelia,
located close to Aurelia Residence San Pietro. The property is part of a larger urban redevelopment project that involves the entire Valle Aurelia area with also the aim of enhancing the former “Fornace Veschi” archeological area.
Aura is a multi-purpose semi open-air commercial gallery, which includes 60 well known brands shops, a hypermarket full of good offers, one of the world’s leading health club “Virgin Active” Gym & Spa and the “Mondadori” bookstore with spaces for recreational activities, restaurants and bars connected by footpaths and green areas. The mall is spread over four levels, in addition to the two underground garages and it acts as a link between the nearby underground / railway stations “Valle Aurelia”, the residential area and the new “Piazza della Fornace”.
The shopping centre provides a welcoming environment for people to meet and spend time, with easy access from everywhere.
Partly open-air, the top floor comprises the terrace food-court, key design feature of the mall with a panoramic view of Rome.
The multi ethnic cuisines on offer include American fast food, Asian specialties, French delicatessen and Italian regional dishes, among all.
Inspired by the commercial galleries of the nineteenth century, such as the Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, the design of the interior is conceived as space to be both directional as well as place to stop, linger and admire the surroundings. The theme of the road is further emphasized in the choice of the materials, for example the stone effect flooring that recalls a paved road and which, by playing on the different shades from white to dark grey, create interesting patterns reminiscent of the streets of Rome.
Not just a shopping area, but an experience with interesting architectural and archaeological expressions.
