Mid-Summer Gala – Summer Passion

August 15 entices guests and friends to Villa d’Este for a midsummer extravaganza: Summer Passion promises to be a night of pure enchantment as the summer reaches its climax.
The world-famous floating pool will set the scene for an array of colours, sounds and aromas in this extraordinary location. Leading Italian flower design and event production expert Vincenzo Dascanio is styling the occasion on the adjacent terrace as a unique venue for an unforgettable poolside dinner.

Guests will be greeted by an aperitif at 7pm, when every morsel will encapsulate summer secrets in all their splendour. The gala dinner will be a celebration of seasonal flavours, expertly prepared by Group Executive Chef Michele Zambanini and his kitchen staff. Every dish contains surprises as the freshest and finest ingredients are blended together in a tribute to the hottest time of the year.

Travelling artists and immersive entertainment from global event concept experts NuArt will bring the occasion to life. A spectacular firework display will bring the gala dinner to a close as the scintillating sparks and bright colours light up the sky above Lake Como, transporting guests into a magical world. The entertainment continues with an after party and DJ set.

Tickets cost 650 euro per person. A 100% deposit is required upon booking with a 30-day cancellation policy. (Cancellation is free with prepayments refunded for cancellations received before 15 July 2023). If the weather is bad, the event will be moved inside the halls of Villa d’Este.
