21/03/2013The new "Dolce Vita" lounge

From 8 March, come and discover the new "Dolce Vita" Alitalia Lounge at the Terminal 1 departures area in Rome Fiumicino airport.
With completely renovated style and services for passengers traveling in the Magnifica and Ottima - Business classes, Alitalia Freccia Alata Plus, Freccia Alata and SkyTeam Elite Plus club members, Carta Alitalia Platino American Express and Carta Lounge holders and all passengers traveling with the Comfort Rome-Milan offer, the lounge covers a total of 700 m2.

The new Lounge is located in the same place as Alitalia's previous Bramante Lounge, the most popular lounge among Alitalia clients. This is why the Company has chosen it to present the new "Lounge" concept, no longer just a place to relax while awaiting your flight, but an authentic "flagship store" of Alitalia's core values and features, in addition to Italian excellence worldwide, also thanks to the collaboration of top Italian brands including Illy, Eataly, B&B Italia, MDF Italia, Prandina, Gruppo Sintesi and FSC Professional Show S.p.A. Aeronautics is the dominant theme inside the "Dolce Vita", thanks to the furnishing materials, stylized pieces of reclaimed original aeroplane parts such as rotor-blade spinners transformed into standard lamps or an MD80 radome used as a suspension lamp.

The theme is further developed with the presence of a flight simulator, an innovative choice inside the Lounges which Alitalia has provided to allow clients to experience the sensation of piloting an aeroplane. The Pilot Bar is the focal point of the refreshment and relaxation area, characterised by its use of original on-board instruments and its range of the top names in Italian wines and food. Come and taste the best Italian coffee with Illy and try a gourmet selection of "Made in Italy" culinary excellence from Eataly.

The new Lounge will join those already present in the airports of Milan Linate, Naples, Venice, Turin, Catania, Palermo, New York and Chicago, making your time in the airport more comfortable and enjoyable.
