Riva at the Venice Film Festival 2017
A light reserved for superstars
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 world’s most famous shipyard will be present at the 74th Venice International Film Festival, as a partner of Fondazione Ente dello Spettacolo (FEdS), the Italian National Foundation for the Performing Arts.
A Riva Lounge, inspired by the unique style of these 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. VIPs, guests, directors and actors whose films are being shown at the Festival will be able to relax, pass the time and give interviews in this exceptional location, a part of which will be furnished entirely with exclusive décor from the Riva Brand Experience.
Furthermore, for the entire duration of the 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.
