Confirmed: Hasselblad closed their Italian design center

Today Photoscala confirmed what I already reported back in May: the Italian design center in Treviso, that Hasselblad opened in 2012, has been closed. Hasselblad is probably/hopefully abandoning the idea of creating high-end re-batched Sony cameras like the Lunar, Stellar, Solar and HV models. There is still no official statement from the company.
