On December 8th 2018 the Mantova Outlet Village, 100 boutiques of the best fashion brands in an architectural structure of a sixteenth-century village, inaugurated the renovation of its central square with the Orangerie de L’Officina dei Giardini.
The structure, built in just 50 days, hosts the Antica Focacceria San Francesco, a brand of excellence and quality with deep historical roots that go back to the popular Sicilian cuisine and Aromatica Cafè: the CIRFOOD RETAIL format, in which conviviality and taste meets in an informal and welcoming atmosphere

The supporting structure of the Orangerie, in black powder-coated steel assembled by means of bolted joints and without welding on site, occupies 370 square meters. The shape consists of a main central body flanked by two lateral naves of smaller dimensions, with large glazed skylights. On a portion of the roof of the central body a flat skylight in walkable glass has been inserted, which further expands the brightness of the spaces. The external envelope made of opaque black painted aluminum curtain wall elements, as the load-bearing structure and the thermal break and double-glazed windows allow an extremely low thermal transmission coefficient, able to guarantee a high thermal insulation power between inside and outside. Even the roof made with a high thermal insulation package consisting of an exposed lower panel of black hydro MDF, a double layer of thermal insulation, vapor barrier, slope layer and top finish in double seamed sheet metal, ensures the best conditions

in winter and in summer and optimal water tightness. All, of course, has the static and seismic certifications for the safety of the public.

The Officina dei Giardini is also involved in the outdoor realization of particular dehors with acrylic glass walls, characterized by customized steel vases, custom-made umbrellas with integrated heating and extremely resistant flooring, good-looking and highly technological, made of materials eco-friendly in wood fibers and oleofin resins.

Claudio Baitelli, CEO of FC Retail, said: «The project of the new Orangerie in which we are inserted is an added value for us, capable of enhancing the image of our store. We hope that the public of the center will immediately know and appreciate the recipes of Antica Focacceria: a brand that
