‘Roberto Bolle & Friends’ brings together Roberto Bolle and a splendid group of etoiles in a ballet gala, at the impressive Arena di Verona. Roberto selects only the best dancers in the world who have reached international fame to perform and offers guests the unique occasion to admire many of the most famous dancers in the world on the same stage. The beauty of this occasion is that the audience experiences the diverse techniques, schools and styles of these many world-class dancers. The program of the Gala changes with each performance, but the dancers always perform pieces ranging from much-loved classical repertoire to modern and contemporary ballets.
In the heart of Verona’s wine growing region, the Valpolicella, the Byblos Art Hotel is truly unique. Built in a 16th century Venetian villa, the Villa Amista, the Byblos is a veritable gallery of contemporary art. Entirely created by the celebrated designer, Alessandro Mendini, there is absolutely nothing classical about it. It contains the works of renowned modern artists including Damien Hirst, Marc Quinn, Peter Halley, Sol LeWitt, Vanessa Beecroft, Beatriz Millar and Anish Kapoor. The Villa Amista’s exterior is classical and faces a sumptuous garden with centuries old trees, stone fountains and antique statues. The interior, with its 16th century mosaics, however, is in total contrast to the vivid pop art colours and ultra-modern design. From the Gio Ponti tableware to the Frank Lloyd and Aldo Rossi chairs and tables, to the flashy, psychedelic motifs, everything has been designed to give this historical building a totally off the wall atmosphere. Inside the rooms, we find the talented work of Alessandro Mendini, with an explosion of shapes and colours, a chic variation of stylized furniture and gleaming walls, all of which create a harmonious combination of elements that on the surface seem incompatible, and a series of unique works of art. From Peter’s Bar to the Atelier Restaurant, the atmosphere remains colorful, original and totally contemporary in the framework of a classical décor, as exemplified by the 15th century wine cellar which possesses 400 varieties of carefully selected wines. The spa and its indoor basin are a dream come true. Totally covered with small blue and gold mosaic squares, it’s the ideal spot to relax while contemplating the ornate dome with its Baroque frescoes, before heading in for a well-deserved massage.
