In an intimate evening of Italian aria and fine cuisine during the recent World Gourmet Summit, S. Pellegrino and Acqua Panna released their 2013 Special Edition – Tribute to Italian Opera bottles which feature the late Luciano Pavarotti.
The evening began on April 17 at Gattopardo, with an exhibition of Sanpellegrino Italian Talent from Bulgari and Missoni. Bulgary started the evening with a stunning fashion show. The models took centre stage while featuring Bulgari’s dazzling jewelry and Francis Cheong gowns. Later on for the main event, guests were serenaded with performances by Japanese lyrical soprano Satsuki Nagatome, American tenor Juan Jackson, and Singaporean pianist Francesca Lee.
To accompany the performances, guests were pampered with an exquisite five-course dinner of fine Italian cuisine. Each dish was paired with either an S.Pellegrino or an Acqua Panna.
The exclusive Special Edition “S.Pellegrino celebrates Luciano Pavarotti” will temporarily replace the standard S.Pellegrino bottle in the most refined restaurants around the world for a grand total of 50 million bottles. The same tribute to the maestro will be paid by Acqua Panna with its own Special Edition bottle.
