BUON APPETITO: Bulgari hosted a dinner Tuesday night to honor Isabella Rossellini and to welcome Alberto Festa, its newly appointed president of North America. Bulgari tapped chef Michael White, of Marea, Morini and Ai Fiori, to cater the dinner, which was held at its Fifth Avenue flagship in New York.
Rossellini, who is the face of Bulgari’s new advertising campaign, for which she is promoting its new Isabella Rossellini handbag line, spoke of her love of her home country. “Italy doesn’t have oil…but it has style,” she said, kicking off the four-course meal. “Buon appetito!”
