When Valecenter opened in 1993 it was one of the first shopping centres in Marcon, one of the suburban areas of Venice. Following an award-winning refurbishment, complete with a new design inspired by the world-famous Murano glassware and subsequent repositioning in 2007, Valecenter quickly became the region’s most vibrant and popular shopping centre. Valecenter is comprised of three connected shopping areas and a stand-alone retail building. It boasts a varied range of 118 shops and various amenities, together with a dominant Rossetto hypermarket, plus a UCI Luxe multiplex cinema and parking for more than 2,600 cars. The centre attracts some four and a half million visitors a year from the wider region and is extremely popular with the many tourists who visit the region of Venice.
