Jewels on the Grand Canal
A reportage of the inauguration event of the Giovanni Raspini store in Venice.

Beauty, glamour and much elegance. These are the magic ingredients that have contributed to the success of the opening of Giovanni Raspini’s Venetian boutique. Thursday, October 15 - a beautiful early autumn afternoon - journalists, many distinguished guests, and the Venice that counts, celebrated the Tuscan brand’s exclusive store. A candy-coffer-shop located right on the Rialto Bridge, in one of the most popular and frequented spots of the Grand Canal.

The event was then transferred to the exclusive location of the Hotel Splendid, famous for the largest roof-terrace in the city. Here a drink was offered, sponsored by a co-marketing of excellence with Marchesi Antinori, in the magnificent scenery of a sunset over the rooftops of Venice, a stone throw from Piazza San Marco. Then the "small square" of the hotel has hosted the convivial party, animated by music and by the presence of Prince Maurice, the international DJ, collaborator of Grace Jones.

The inauguration was thus transformed into a veritable contemporary festival, attended by hundreds of invited guests. Everyone wanted to wear and interpret Giovanni Raspini’s jewellery, in a fashion game involving everyone. Under a clear, warm sky, in a Venetian night returned to its most authentic dimension, the local community has welcomed Giovanni Raspini within its own exclusive circle. On the Grand Canal, right on the Rialto bridge, the necessary luxury that comes from the heart of Tuscany.
