It looks like LEGO has expanded into Italy as there will be a new LEGO Certified Store opening there this summer. The store will be ran by Percassi House of Brands which has worked with other major name brands of products.
If you’re not familiar with what a LEGO Certified Store is, it’s basically a store owned and operated by a third party with an agreement with LEGO sort of like a franchise. You’ll mostly find these stores in countries where LEGO does not have their own stores in.
Thanks to Andrea from Mattonito for the email.
