CIN, the Iberian leader in the paint and varnish market, was the brand selected to give colour to the Capitólio Theatre, the building chosen to host the Lisbon Urban Rehabilitation Week.
This event, which is occurring in Lisbon for the fourth consecutive year, takes place between 27 March and 2 April, and is occurring in the primary cultural facilities of the Parque Mayer entertainment cluster, after the full renovation of the building, the painting of which was the responsibility of CIN.
The CIN paint used in this work was Cinoxano, a key product in rehabilitation works, which was specially designed for historical buildings.
This operation was run by the local authority in Lisbon, and the Capitólio Theatre reopened its doors to the public in November 2016.
