De Grisogono founder Fawaz Gruosi celebrated his 63rd birthday with 500 guests, including friends and family, at the Cala di Volpe Hotel on the Costa Smeralda in Porto Cervo, Italy on August 8. On the guest list were celebrities including Victoria Silvstedt, Margherita Marzotto, Barthélémy d’Ollone, Alessia Tedeschi, Simona Ventura, Elisabetta Gregoraci, Prince Emmanuel-Philibert de Savoie, Ventura Carraro, and Claudia Galanti, while Mika performed live in honour of Gruosi.
The Cala di Volpe is where Gruosi likes to stay when not at the family residence, according to his company.
The party had a central theme of love, with the words displayed in large lettering by the poolside. Said Gruosi in a release, ‘While in my opinion, every instant in life is reason to celebrate, there is one day that resonates in my heart and that is the day on which I was born. Since then, and every day, life has given me its most precious gifts—health, love, friendship and happiness. To me, to be surrounded by those I love and of whom I am fond is the best way to thank them and an act of love.’
The cocktail party took place around the hotel pool, while a fireworks’ display led guests to the dinner. The after-party took place on the beach and ran till dawn.
