Historic Villa Underwent Restoration for 6 Years Now Open to Public

2017-10-31



A historic downtown villa, open to the public for the first time in nearly a century after restoration by Parada.


The three-story Rong Villa at 186 Shaanxi Road N. is the former residence of Rong Zongjing (1873-1938), an industrial tycoon from Wuxi of Shanghai`s neighboring Jiangsu Province who built a commercial empire in China. The site underwent restoration work for six years before finally being opened for public viewing.


Prada spent three years on research, including collecting ideas on how to combine its corporate culture with the history of the villa and the Rong family. Craftsmen from China and Italy worked together to give the historic villa a new lease on life.


To visit, reservations are required through Prada`s official WeChat account: a pradawechat.fortytwo.com.cn/Events/20170920/pc_cn.html.
