Apple Confirms: Two New Italian Stores to Open Soon, One in Sicily

A new job listing appeared on Apple’s website and spotted by Italian website Macity [Google Translation] confirms the rumors we’ve been hearing about a Store opening soon in southern Italy, most specifically in Sicily. The lack of Apple retail stores in southern Italy has been controversial for years, with the company clearly focusing on opening Stores from the region Lazio (where Rome is located) and above.

According to local newspapers and the usual speculation, the new Store is set to open by the end of summer 2011. The exact location is still unclear, although people familiar with the matter claim the store will open in the city of Catania. With another job listing, Apple also confirmed another store will open soon in Bologna.

It’s good to see Apple opening stores in Italy that aren’t in Rome or Milan. Now, where’s my Viterbo Apple Store? (probably will never happen)
