Visitors index

Percentage change in Shopping Center visitors compared to the previous year, and trend for the current year

Thanks to Microlog counting systems, installed in more than 350 Shopping Centers and about 10,000 stores, we are able to collect a large amount of data and return very reliable trends on visitor flows.

The indexes contained in this page are processed every month, and show the percentage variation of entries compared to the previous year. We have divided the Malls by Italian Region, considering only the regions for which we can analyse a sufficient number of centers to make the sample representative.

Monthly the page will be updated with the trends of the month just passed, and with graphs showing the overall trend at national level, both in comparison with the previous year and for the current year. Through the appropriate button at the bottom of the page, it is always possible to download the pdf with the data file for the current year.

We are also working on a visitors index for Retail. In the near future this page will be enriched with the number of admissions in stores divided by main product sectors. Keep on following us! ;-)


National trend of current year over the previous year – MAY: +9,0% (on 2021) _ -15,4% (on 2019)

The 2022 indices analyze the trend in inflows over 2021 and 2019 (pre-Covid year).


YTD (Year to Date) 2022/2021: +24,8% _ 2022/2019: -19,9%

LTM (Last Twelve Months) 21/22 vs 20/21: +18,1% vs 19/20: -2,9%

Regional Trend – May 2022 vs 2021 and 2019

Percentage change in visitors, month on month, for the current year – national



In May, the national trend of mall entries is up big over 2021, with +9.0%. However, it leaves a -15.4% on 2019, improving on the -19.7% of previous month.
Still comparing with 2019, the Italian regions with the best performance for May are Puglia (-12,5%) and Veneto (-12.5%), while the regions with the most negative trend are Lazio, which marks a -20.1%, and Friuli V.G., with a gap of -19%.

In the close comparison with the previous month, May gained +3.7% on April 2022.

The trend for 2019 is therefore positive and comforting, with the percentage turnout gap remaining significant, but finally falling decisively below -20%.
