McArthurGlen chairman, J W Kaempfer, said: “We're very much looking forward to opening our centre near Naples and we're confident that the experience we've garnered through our existing centres in Italy will enable us to make a success of our newest development and that we'll give the Campania region of Italy a designer outlet centre to be proud of.”
