Costan's expertise furnished the new Sapori & Dintorni store in the heart of the old Siena Town, Piazza del Campo. The new refrigeration system installed makes very efficient use of the available space while complying with the preservation constraints placed by the Fine Arts Authority on this prestigious location. The sales point, covering an area of 350 m2, was opened on May 13th on the ground floor of Palazzo Petroni, a building that dates back to the XIVth century and is only 20 m away from the celebrated Torre del Mangia.

The interior is organised on three levels, linked by exposed brick arches, ramps and gently sloping flights of stairs. Next to the sales area, the store's layout features a bar and a food court in which visitors can taste the wide variety of local specialties prepared on site.

Costan supplied extremely versatile and innovative solutions for every department: Gazelle multidecks with double-glass doors for self-service meat and the vast array of cold cuts and cheeses offered. These cabinets provide the best insulation in the industry and 50% lower consumption, compared to an open cabinet with night blinds. In addition, 5 metres of Rossini serve-over counters, located adjacent to the area where hot dishes are served, are there to highlight traditional gastronomy. Ouverture practical open plug-in cabinets for fresh produce and Armonia closed cabinets for beverages complete the equipment.

This installation was made possible by the EptaBlue Waterloop system, an innovative solution that converts each refrigerated cabinet or cold room connected from remote-cooled to plug-in, by means of a plug&play link. This technology solved the store's architectural and power supply constraints while ensuring perfect preservation of the fine local and national specialties offered.
