History

Born in the late 50's, Galleria Cavour is placed immediately at the top of the commercial offer in Bologna, a city that, as well as the rest of Italy, wanted to rise again, starting new business, rebuilding a future the war had, in part, destroyed. And it was in an Italy deeply marked and worn by the second World War that the people started to rebuild what was going to become one of the most important symbols of the rebirth of a Country in the middle of the booming economic, as well as one of the leading setting in the commercial and social upturn. Born in the late 50's, Galleria Cavour is placed immediately at the top of the commercial offer in Bologna, a city that, as well as the rest of Italy, wanted to rise again, starting new business, rebuilding a future the war had, in part, destroyed.

In an Italy marked and worn by the second World War, it started the rebuilding work for something designated to become one of the most important symbols of the rebirth of a Country in the middle of the booming economic, as well as one of the leading setting in the commercial and social upturn.

During the fall of '59, the first stores open their doors to the city, just below the Paviglione, the Bolognese porch which gave birth to the Galleria; among the

excellence of national and international fashion and luxury, some of the most

important names of those years, especially related to the world of Sport,

Socking and Glove, started to make their way. With more than 50 years of experience, Galleria Cavour has now become the symbol of excellence, a bridge between the Bologna of the past - rich in history and art - and the Bologna of the future - between fashion and trends - always in evolution.
