Bvlgari has hosted an exclusive, intimate event, at stunning Palazzo Colonna, to introduce celebrities, press and VIP clients the upscale one-of-a-kind pieces of the Barocko collection: Bvlgari’s contemporary, sophisticated and creative interpretation of Rome’s signature Baroque art and architecture movement, which flourished in the Eternal City in the 17th and 18th century.

 In keeping with the inspiration, Bvlgari decided to stage the event – which was organised in accordance with all the required safety measures – at iconic Palazzo Colonna, one of Rome’s largest and most antique private palazzos.

The construction of the building started in the 14th century and lasted for five centuries. During the 17th century, the Colonna family tapped some of the most prestigious artists of the time, including Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Antonio del Grande, Carlo Fontana and Paolo Schor among others, to transform it into an authentic Baroque gem. During that period, the Colonna family also commissioned the creation of the majestic Galleria Colonna.

Before immersing themselves into the world of Barocko, the event’s guests had the chance to enjoy a tour of Palazzo Colonna, before reaching the palazzo’s garden. Immersed in a green paradise, they attended an haute couture-inspired runway show. Twenty models took the catwalk wearing some of the most iconic pieces of the Barocko collection, whilst the orchestra of Rome’s Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, one of the oldest musical institution of the world, performed as the sun set over Rome.

A high-profile range of celebrities flocked to Palazzo Colonna to attend the event including Naomi Campbell, Jon Kortajarena, Matt Dillon, Kitty Spencer and Poppy Delevingne.

After the show, guests were invited to a sophisticated dinner in the garden, where chef Emanuele Scarello surprised them with a menu created by Emanuele after having carefully studied the magnificent world of Bulgari and its link with the Baroque.
