November 4, 2010 - On November 3rd, Bulgari CEO Francesco Trapani, Nicola Bulgari and Paolo Bulgari hosted a lavish fundraising event during the Rome Film Festival to benefit Save the Children. Approximately 500 guests joined them at the Salone Adelle Fontane, located in the fashionable EUR section of Rome, for a cocktail reception, seated dinner, and a special performance by legendary musician Lenny Kravitz.
Event designer Simon Costin transformed the space into an atmosphere reminiscent of Grand Central Station during the 1950s. There was a live auction of Bulgari products; 100% of the sales and 100% of the evening’s ticket sales (€850 each) are being donated to Save the Children’s worldwide education programs.
Actress Julianne Moore attended decked in emeralds and diamonds from Bulgari’s High Jewelry Collection; other notable guests included Delfina Delettrez, Isabella Ferrari, Valeria Golino, Martina Codecasa, and many more.
