A memorable night: tour, show and gala dinner
An ancient palace built in the 13th century illuminated by 1,000 candles. A Medieval fresh and inviting court, as part of a city full of history but crowded by young generations searching their future at the local University. This is the atmosphere that yesterday accompanied NGV2012 Bologna exhibitors and participants in an unforgettable gala dinner offered by NGVA Europe, in the extraordinary Palazzo Re Enzo.
After an interesting tour round the beauties of Bologna historical centre, over 200 guests were welcomed by the Medieval music played by Charivari Ensemble, which is a group specialized in the ancient repertoire, featuring original instruments and dressed in vintage costumes.
Meanwhile, in the Salone del Podestà, refined typical Italian taste dishes were served. Trevor Fletcher, NGVA Europe former President, greeted the guests underlining how NGV sector represents a real interest for many local and international companies, just like the Bologna event has showed once again.
