"More than just a shopping centre: a new approach to eating!".
This is the citation of the organizers of the MIPIM property market in announcing FICO Eataly World as the winner of the 2018 MIPIM Award in the Best Shopping Center category. Much more than a shopping center, FICO is an immersion in the best of Italian food and good living.

FICO Eataly World was announced as the winner in the Best Shopping Center category of the MIPIM Awards, after competing against the Rive Gauche project in Charleroi (Belgium), the Suzhou Center in Suzhou (China) and the Tokyu Plaza Ginza in Tokyo (Japan). “It’s a great honor to receive this prestigious international award,” said Prelios SGR general manager Andrea Cornetti, who accepted the MIPIM Award in Cannes for FICO. “We share it with everyone who believed in the project from the start, both in the public sector and the very many private investors. I want to thank everyone who helped make this splendid initiative possible.”
“FICO has won outstanding recognition, with one of the most prestigious awards in our industry,” said Riccardo Serrini, Prelios Group chief operating officer. “Today’s MIPIM Award is a tribute first of all to the people who initiated the FICO project and chose the Prelios Group as their partner on this great adventure. It’s also an award that Italy and everyone who played a part in creating FICO Eataly World and works for its success on a daily basis can be proud of.”
Promoted by CAAB, Eatalyworld and Prelios SGR with the participation of Italy’s leading institutional investors, FICO Eataly World in Bologna is the world’s largest agro-food park, with all the marvels of Italian biodiversity in a location of more than 10 hectares. Within the Prelios Group, the FICO project also involved Prelios Integra, which was responsible for the project management of the site, officially opened in November 2017, and will be managing the subsequent development of this important Italian project.
