Tuscany recently expanded its boundaries with the Milan opening of Toscanino, a concept store developed with the intent to spread Tuscan culture, values and traditions outside of its region.
Created to meet the growing demand for quality, Toscanino promotes and cultivates items made in Tuscany around the globe by providing top-of-the-line products and craftsmanship typical from the region manufactured by 150 of the most reputable brands and artisans in the gastronomic and home furnishings sectors.
Located in the heart of the fashion capital, the store includes a restaurant, a food market and a kitchen for teaching as well as tasting. The project was developed by Tuscan Simone Arnetoli, founder of Galateo Ricevimenti, who aims to open another 8 outlets in Europe by 2020 and distribute worldwide to countries like Japan, China, the United States and Russia.
With such attention to Tuscan quality, it was no surprise the company stakeholders selected K-array as the audio solution for their store. Underlining the store’s ethos, K-array’s products and innovative technology are made in Tuscany – researched, designed and produced from start to finish – in the countryside outside of Florence.
Taking advantage of the speakers’ discreetness, Toscanino had four ultra-mini Lyzard-KZ12 line arrays installed in the mezzanine of the store. The loudspeakers were paired with two compact Rumble-KU26 subwoofers for the low-end frequencies. On the ground level, three Kobra-KK52 speakers and one Rumble-KU210 subwoofer have been employed with one Kommander-KA24 powering both areas.
To regulate the volume of the two areas independently, the KA-POT1 accessory was added in the bar area so management can adjust at their convenience.
“We are thrilled with our new audio system solution. Thanks to our friends at Exhibo who helped us out step-by-step, it not only sounds great and enhances the ambiance, but it furthers our commitment to promoting worldwide our heritage and products made in Tuscany,” says Massimo Fontani, installer at GSM Impianti. “There could not have been a better fit than K-array and now we are looking forward to the next store opening.”
