Palazzo Fendi in Rome
Last week, Fendi surprised us by literally picking us up after the last fashion show in Paris to take us in a private plane to Rome. We were there both to celebrate the end of the fashion week, and most importantly to join Karl Lagerfeld, Pietro Beccari, and the whole Fendi family to celebrate the inauguration of Palazzo Fendi: the largest Fendi boutique in the world along with its new private space, suites, and their brand new restaurant Zuma.
The inauguration brought together the closest friends of the house and in a whole day with the brand, and started by visiting their headquarters at Palazzo della Civilità Italiana. The building also named as the “squared Colosseum”, was originally planned by Mussolini for the 1942 world exhibition, and the marble construction and arches give different and beautiful sights of Rome from every corner.
After a delicious Roman lunch, we then headed to the Palazzo Fendi, and discovered the beautiful space of Palazzo Privé, which was by far one of the best sights of interior design I’ve seen this year. Designed by Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci of DimoreStudio, the space was a feast for the eyes, as there is a combination of sophisticated and luxurious italian design with intense and unexpected colours and textures. Glossy black tables, wooden floors, and modern lighting in the right fit for the new definition of Roman Lounge.
The night ended with a red carpet entrance that then led the way to the top 3 floors of the Zuma restaurant with delicious italian creations. Thank you Fendi for the unique experience!
