The new Autogrill resembles a volcano, gradually rising above the surrounding countryside until it reaches a height of 27.5 meters. Villoresi Est is made of eco-friendly, recyclable building materials, and the entire skeleton of the approximately 2,500 m2 building is constructed of PEFC-certified glued laminate timber from sustainable forests. The building is constructed of eco-friendly, recyclable materials. From its paved asphalt to its imposing roof, this one-of-a-kind structure is a visual stand-out, its fluid design calling to mind the experience of “rest in motion” typically enjoyed by travelers passing through these parts.
