One of the world’s oldest nightclubs as well as one of the most dramatic due to its glass pyramid construction, the Cocoricò  club in Rimini has been shut by the Italian authorities due to non-payment of taxes.

According to media reports, as the nightclub was closed the summer of 2015 after a 16-year old male died from taking ecstasy at the venue and passing away. The closure led to the venue not being able to cover its bills and was never able to recover.
