The Spanish chain has taken Italy by storm. They now have stores at all the major malls that ring Rome, and three stores on the Via del Corso. The newly opened super-Zara, is the chain's 5000th location worldwide. On the site of the former Rinascente department store, it's a sleek, ecologically-correct five-story showcase, with a children's department on the lower level, a men's department on the top level, and three levels of women's clothing and accessories in between.
