(AGI) Rome, May 30 - Alitalia inaugurated two new lounges in Fiumicino and Malpensa, the international airports for Rome and Milan respectively, on Monday. The airline has completely renovated its styles and services to reflect a new concept of hospitality in the spirit of Italy's products of excellence, including the introduction of an exclusive "live cooking" service. "Lounges are a very important element all over the world and these two are a 'benchmark'," affirmed Alitalia Chairman Luca Cordero. "We'll open those in Rome and Malpensa before proceeding with New York and the rest of the world." The new Casa Alitalia (Alitalia Home) concept was designed by Alitalia's staff and realised by Marco Piva, a world-renowned architect behind numerous major projects such as the Bulgari Window Concept Design, the Feng Tai Financial Center in Beijing, the Domus Aventino Hotel in Roma, the 'Hotel Gallia in Milan, and Dubai's Port. The interior spaces - the welcome hall, dining area, and rest and conversation zones - were designed to be as similar as possible to those of a private household. Even the lounge's entrance, inspired by the large front door of an Italian palace, acts as an element that separates the chaotic airport environment with the comfortable, refined, and homey feel of Casa Alitalia. The catering service, Alitalia stated, is inspired by the excellencies of Italy's food and wine. It stands out for the presence of a live cooking area, in which a live cooking chef prepares meals twice a day, proposing a selection of pasta and pizza menus, with vegeterian and gluten-free dishes available as well.
