A temporary Riva Lounge at the Hotel Excelsior is a major social hub at the 74th Venice International Film Festival. From favourite boat of directors and actors in several successful films to courtesy boat for the most famous and glamorous film festival: it was only natural that Riva would arrive in the Lido playing a leading role on the international jet-setting scene. The 74th Venice International Film Festival is running from 30th August to 9th September. For this occasion, Riva has partnered with Fondazione Ente dello Spettacolo (FEdS), the Italian National Foundation for the Performing Arts.
A Riva Lounge, inspired by the unique style of legendary yachts, symbols of the “Dolce Vita” and of elegant living, will be open for the entire duration of the Festival in Sala Tropicana 1 of the Hotel Excelsior, the Lido’s famous meeting place and point of reference, which will host a full calendar of events organized by FEdS. Furnished with exclusive décor from the Riva Brand Experience, it is a perfect venue for VIPs, guests, directors and actors whose films are being shown at the Festival, to unwind or give interviews. The design of the chairs and tables, the materials used and every small detail demonstrate the artisan quality that is a hallmark of the Riva brand, evident in every historic hull crafted from mahogany, as well as in the masterpieces manufactured in the shipyard nowadays.
The refined line of accessories from the Riva Boutique collection (available at www.rivaboutique.it) will also be on display in the Riva Lounge, providing the final touches to its decoration. Some of the unique items will be presented to Riva Lounge guests.
During the 74th Venice International Film Festival, customers, actors and artists will be able to come aboard and experience sailing on a magnificent Aquariva, an iconic model and heir of the historic speedboats of the past, made available as a courtesy boat.
