Ferretti has established two Riva-branded hospitality areas in key locations to entertain actors, directors, VIPs and guests during the Venice Film Festival which opens today.

Ferretti has partnered with the Italian National Foundation for the Performing Arts to provide a relaxed and elegant venue for interviews and meetings.

There has been a Riva-themed entertainment lounge at  the Gritti Palace Hotel since the 2015 festival, but this year sees the addition of a similar facility the Excelsior Lido hotel.

The Riva-themed and furnished lounges and outdoor entertainment areas evoke the elegance of ‘La Dolce Vita’, while iconic Aquariva model speedboats are available to ferry guests to various venues throughout the city.
