Ferretti Group celebrates in Venice with Elton John

8 January 2024

One of the greatest performers and songwriters of all time and one of the most prestigious theatres in the world. This was the star and setting of the event organised by the Ferretti Group that saw the Gran Teatro La Fenice in Venice hosting Elton John performing exclusively for the 900 guests invited by the Ferretti Group.

It’s quite the feeling to be here: in Venice, in the Gran Teatro La Fenice, only wonderful things can happen. We wanted to offer our guests a show worthy of our boats and the Ferretti Group’s incredible 2023,” commented Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “A huge thank you goes to Elton John, who gave us an unforgettable concert last night, moving us every time with the first chords of his beautiful songs. It was an incredible evening that we will carry in our hearts for a very long time.”

The concert organised by Ferretti Group was held in support of Save Venice, a non-profit organisation dedicated to preserving Venice’s artistic heritage, and the Fondazione Teatro La Fenice, of which Ferretti Group has been a supporting partner since 2021.

The concert in Venice was also the occasion to remind the world of the Ferretti Group’s commitment to support 7: the David Beckham UNICEF Fund, and to announce the sale of the Riva Anniversary auctioned on the occasion of Riva’s 180th anniversary: all proceeds were donated to help children in El Salvador.

At the end of the concert Ferretti Group’s guests were invited to the Apollinee rooms of Teatro la Fenice, for a tasting with the Chef Patron of Osteria Francescana Massimo Bottura.
