Enoteca Castello at the Italy pavilion in EPCOT has been repainted with a new look.


Located on the right side of the pavilion next to the recently opened Gelateria Tuscana gelato shop, Enoteca Castello sells a range of Italian wines.


The previous faded look has been replaced with a deeper vivid color.

once again, I'm reading forums threads about paint. what a time to be alive!

The natural weathering and aging process hopefully will (since you mention the castle) fade out the pink. As for Italy it looks just fine and will only improve with age just like quality vino.

I prefer the more rustic look over the new Disney Springs one. Is WS slated to follow in the footsteps of the MK and DL and get repainted in a brighter, more vivid, more cartoony colour palette? 🎨

And at that time there were those that said they painted it that awful purple-blue color because it would fade in time and then look good...lol While this building at least they could add some aging detail to it which would help, I don't believe the goal was ever to paint anything horribly garish knowing that in a few years it would look about right. not to say this is horrible garish...just a bit too dark...and flat next to the other buildings.

I think we saw this actually happen yes? The blue roof color on Cinderella's castle in WDW was repainted a iridescent blue then they repainted it again to a different blue.

This color discussion reminds me of all the shows on HGTV. Oh Karen, that gray clashes with the the robin blue I selected for the entry way. maybe a gray with a touch of lavender will help. And, you have the audience saying, No! that gray is perfect! You have no taste! :rolleyes:

It’s interesting to note that this new colour is closer to what was intended for the pavilion back in 1982: https://progresscityusa.com/2009/03/01/neverworlds-epcots-italy-pavilion-phase-ii/

Yes, I am sure there is a lot he doesn’t know about.. I just like to make jokes about Bobby. But I like to imagine there could have been a company wide memo from Bobby, “Paint stuff! It’s fast cheap and folks notice!”

It is a bit of a strange concept, painting something, only for it to look "ideal" in a few years time. In the meantime it gets to look like the contrast/saturation level has been whacked upto an 11. Much like barbies dream castle over at Magic Kingdom.

So, delay your vacation to WDW because the paint is going to look right in a couple years.... That is a ridiculous idea...the paint it supposed to look perfect when the project is complete... not after weathering... Now you can prepare for the end result, but it should never start out looking bad.

Don't remember where I saw/heard this, but exteriors are usually painted so they will look ideal in a few years time. As PPs have pointed out, allows for Mother Nature to come in and help with the sun and rain to naturally weather it.
