24 Jan Vatican Book Launch
Daniela and her team created a one-off bespoke event for the Vatican to launch the book, Meditations on Vatican Art by Father Mark Haydu, LC, STL, the international coordinator of the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums. A cocktail and canapé reception for 150 guests took place at a historic, members-only Palace in the center of Florence for a mesmerizing evening over Aperitivo with a book signing plus Q&A with the Author.
Anyone can organize an event but uniting elegance, detail and functionality is another story. That is our story with Daniela Fagotti. I never imagined beautiful live music, a stunning setting, delicious hors d'oeuvres, and a fine selection of wines all together to set the stage for an evening of spiritual reflections and raising funds for a worthy cause.

Professor Antonio Paolucci, Director of the Vatican Museums, also gave an artistic reflection from Meditations on Vatican Art, which features a series of Vatican masterpieces, contemplations, and prayer with selected works by masters including Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio, Cano, and Pinturicchio. Fine wines from the Bocelli Estate, run by the family of famed tenor, Andrea Bocelli, who have been making classic wines for almost three centuries, were served alongside products from Casa Ceccatelli in Greve in Chianti who supplied quality Tuscan meats and cheeses to guests.
