Of the many, wonderful parties organised as part of the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2008, the one which had the Poseidon Gardens as its backdrop was certainly among the most successful and technically challenging at the same time.
It's not the first time that the Poseidon Gardens have welcomed the friends of Ischia Global, and each year the commitment of the structure is increasingly renewed to make these evenings perfect. The effort of the organisers goes in two directions: on the one hand to preserve the tranquillity of the guests spending their days in the spa complex, taking advantage of the pools, wellness centre and the beach. On the other hand, at the same time, to carry out all the tasks necessary for the success of the truly extraordinary event (assembly of the impressive stage, tables, buffet, light towers, outdoor furniture for the beach and pool dining areas, etc).
A cheerful, efficient and smiling hostess, Lucia Beringer, personally welcomed the many guests, among which was the notable presence of the Minister for Cultural Heritage Sandro Bondi, of the godmother of the Festival Maria Grazia Cucinotta, of the movie producer and President of Calcio Napoli Aurelio De Laurentis, of the beloved, by the Italian audience and others, Giancarlo Giannini, as well as a host of other top stars - Gael Garcia Bernal, Marc Canton, Franco Nero, Trudy Styler, Terry Gilliam, Rosario Dawson, Tony Renis.
The party was organised in collaboration with Massimo Bottiglieri, who through the sponsor Chronotech was committed to ensuring that everything ran smoothly. Thus, if for the select few guests who already knew the island, and Poseidon in particular, their admiration for the beauty of the spa complex and exquisite hospitality was renewed, you may well say that for those visiting the Gardens for the first time, the Gala was certainly a very pleasant discovery.
During the evening, a sumptuous buffet was served, prepared by the Gardens' restaurant, while cocktails were offered by the De Georgio brothers team. Matia Bazar, in a crescendo of rhythm, literally carried guests away with the greatest hits from their repertoire, performed by the voice of Roberta Faccani. In short, everyone left their chairs to dance together to 'Stasera che sera' and 'Per un'ora d'amore', in the warm breeze of a magical night, in the most enchanting garden, illuminated by many stars (of the planet and Hollywood).
