Recap of the Uomo Moderno Winter Launch Party with Brindiamo!

Last Friday Ornella Fado of Brindiamo! and I celebrated the Winter Edition of Uomo Moderno magazine, which presented a toast to the Oscar-winning film: “The Great Beauty.”

Because of my take on the film, I focused on Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” and, therefore, featured TV show host of Brindiamo! (literally ‘Let’s Toast’) on the cover for a literal “toast” to La Dolce Vita!

Our two guests of honor were Italy’s Top TV Celebrity Barbara D’Urso and Actor/Musician Lee Curreri, who played Bruno in “Fame.” Additional special guests included Chef Raffaele Ronca and Designer Nedo Bellucci.

We were also honored to have the Designer of the Stars, Domenico Vacca.

I was pleased to read on Lee Curreri’s Facebook page where he expressed that he felt like he had stumbled into the film of “The Great Beauty” (La Grande Bellezza), since we sought to create exactly that surreal ambiance, which was no easy feat to pull off!

At the event, we presented our guests of honor with a beautiful cake that featured the cover of the winter edition, as well as a Tiffany glass apple to symbolize the Big Apple.

All guests had the opportunity to enter a raffle and win any of the following prizes:

Bellucci Napoli $500 gift card
Federico Hair Salon $500 gift card
Amateur Course by Ribalta Restaurant $200 value
Woll Cookware from Marcello Restaurant $320 value
Fiesta American Grand Coral Beach Cancun 2 Nights 3 Days
Rafele Restaurant Chef-Tasting with Wine Pairing $500 gift card

We really appreciate Bellucci Napoli, Federico Hair Salon, Ribalta Restaurant, Marcello Restaurant, and Rafele Ristorante for their generous gifts!

We are extremely grateful to our two sponsors: Italian Wine and Style Promotion and Miscela D’Oro.

Particular thanks to Italian Wine and Style Promotion who also provided lovely wines to the raffle prizes.

Many thanks to Miscela D’oro who offered a coffee tasting throughout the evening and handed out little gift bags with packs of coffee!
