The Best Night Ever in Tuscany

Tuscany Cover

Last night was probably the best one I have ever had in Tuscany. I was absolutely determined to go to bed early but that didn’t happen. It was so much fun being re-united with my favourite blogger colleagues and of course the LUISAVIAROMAicon team. The first Firenze4Ever evening started off with cocktails at the store.

In the car with Hilary on our way to the next stop: La Fattoria Delle Corti, a gorgeous location 20 minutes outside of Florence, in the Tuscany wine region.

After we left the Fattoria, we went to the pool party at Roberto Cavalli’s mansion which was absolutely amazing. The ambiance, the house, the enormous gardens, every little detail was just beautiful. The music was outstanding and I danced until dawn. Before leaving, I even spoke to Roberto’s parrot as you can see in the last picture.

The decor reminded me a lot of the one that Roberto Cavalli created for the amfAR gala.

I am sure that you are curious how Roberto Cavalli’s palace looks like. It is amazing as you can imagine. I would like to respect his privacy but of course I have some photos for you. Enjoy!

Night at the Museum

Last night, LuisaViaRoma held a private dinner party at La Specola in the Salone degli Scheletri with a very special opera performance. Surrounded by skeletons, the scenery was incredible. We all had a lot of fun during our night at the museum. Only Ben Stiller was missing…

LoL, Sandra
