Riva delights Venice festival patrons

The yachting brand Riva is entertaining international guests at the 74th Venice International Film Festival currently under way in the Italian city.

The shipyard is present at the 11-day festival, which runs till September 9, as a partner of Fondazione Ente dello Spettacolo (FEdS), the Italian National Foundation for the Performing Arts.

A Riva pop-up lounge, a symbol of “dolce vita” and elegant living, is open in Sala Tropicana 1 of the Hotel Excelsior, the Lido’s famous meeting place for VIPs, guests, directors and actors whose films are being shown at the festival.

The lounge is furnished entirely with exclusive décor from Riva. The design of the chairs and tables, the materials used and every small detail demonstrate the artisan quality that is a hallmark of the Riva brand, evident in every historic hull crafted from mahogany, as well as in the masterpieces manufactured in the shipyard nowadays.

A line of accessories from the Riva Boutique collection is also be on display in the Lounge, providing the final touches to its decoration.

A selection of these unique and one-of-a-kind items are being provided to guests, who will be able to take home a piece of the excellence that comes out of a shipyard that is emblematic of “Made in Italy” quality. 

Also, customers, actors and artists are able to experience sailing on an Aquariva, made available as a courtesy boat.

This is Riva’s second lounge in Venice - since 2015, the historic Gritti Palace has already been hosting this space on the terrace of the Bar Longhi, overlooking the Grand Canal. 

Thanks to the Festival and the temporary Lounge, the relationship between Riva and Venice has grown closer than ever, the brands says.
