La pralineria di Ferrero atterra a Fiumicino

The praline, the boutique...Ferrero

Ferrero opens at Rome Fiumicino Airport with the world's first airport boutique, realized by Costa Group, who renovates in this occasion a lasting partnership.

A tailored suite: a boutique that combines elegance and quality, with the praline as main protagonist, artfully exposed to stimulate greediness and curiosity and to attract passers-by's attention, with lights, colours and reflections. For the project Costa Group has cooperated with architect Paolo Maldotti.

An exclusive context, starting from the curved roof covered with Ferrero's pralines, diffusing glares and reflections all around: a carefully studied scenography in order to exalt Ferrero's proposal.

A wide choice of pralines and original packets, personalised for every client, both in packaging and selection. To taste, to buy and to bring on journey.

For a chocolate shopping experience dedicated to high quality, even in airport.

An important and innovative concept for italian confectioner Ferrero and for the market as well.

Bindi Dolci & Caffè, a sweet cult place 5 JANUARY 2012

Bindi Dolci & Caffè, a sweet cult place

In San Giuliano Milanese, Bindi designs a new space starting from its factory: a huge store full of food and delicacies, which can be bought or tasted on-the-spot.

Bindi entrusts the design and realization to Costa Group, giving life to a perfect union: just try and see!

Bindi Dolci & Caffè is an important showcase for the company's savoir-faire. Natural materials and colors, concrete counters and refrigerated reclaimed wood dispay cabinets: just some linear pieces of furniture to enhance a scenographic products presentation. In the back of the shop, the clients can choose among a wide selection of wines which can be perfectly combined with the delicacies of the shop.

The refined simplicity of the place creates an enjoyable contrast to the elegant cake, biscuit and praline boxes. Once again, Costa Group's craftsmanship meets Bindi's high confectionery, giving life to a sweet temple of taste.

Bindi Dolci & Caffè is the ideal place for having a breakfast and doing some exclusive shopping, always with satisfaction.

Last November, Andiamo Youth Cooperative association has laid the foundation stone. The project born this summer, thanks to the initiative taken by some villages (Arcola, Beverino, Monterosso and Viggiano) and Costa Group, that has contributed to the project success supporting the fund raising campaign for the construction.

The initiative is aimed at creating “a new beginning”, “a new opportunity” and offers new common spaces in which children can grow, learn, play and have a meal every day.

The nursery school construction in Kapandatsitsi, one of the poorest and most abandoned areas of Malawi, is an important effort to give hope and a future to the children that attend it.

The project includes also the creation of four small buildings with a large playing area, toilets, kitchens and running water.

The nursery school will host around 200 children from Kapandatsitsi.

This partnership will surely lead to new humanitarian interventions and will contribute to Kapandatsitsi growth.
