Sassuolo, Italy

Gala dinner at Ducal Palace

Historically, Marca Corona was the principal ceramic supplier of castles and estates of the Este family, one of the most important European dynasty born in Emilia Romagna, Italy. The Ducal Palace of Sassuolo, which is one of the Este buildings, was the perfect backdrop for this event with 200 clients, executive staff and prospects.

Guests were welcomed by a majestically lit pathway that led them to the entrance of the Ducal Palace. Here they were met by an architectural video mapping performance displayed on the facade of the building.

Custom setting for a corporate event

Guests were then invited into the courtyard for a welcome cocktail open-air. There were bars, custom cocktails, full lighting, and personalized branded carpet and displays. Dinner was served in the interior Great Halls of the palace.

The interior design for the evening was entirely produced by Genius Progetti including under-lit tables with top-projected lights, floral centerpieces, fabric ceiling covers, custom gazebos and personalized emotional videos that were shown throughout the dining halls for an elegant yet professional setting.

Video mapping on the venue’s facade

To highlight the grandiose and majestic venue, Genius Progetti created a full video mapping projection on the facade of the Ducal Palace of Sassuolo. The show was set to music and interlaced with elements from the client ceramic collection displayed harmoniously with the architectural elements of the palace’s facade.
