WITH INTIMISSIMI IN VERONA

September 25, 2014

A weekend full of unforgettable moments with Intimissimi, new experiences and a dreamlike ice skating show in Arena di Verona.

INTIMISSIMI-ARENA-DI-VERONA-20-SEPTEMBER-2014-06

For those who follow me on Instagram, already know where I was last weekend! It was my first time, that I have visited “the city of love” – Verona. I feel honored and privileged to be invited to Opera Pop on Ice & Intimissimi Event on September 20. I have spent only a night there to attend the most romantic and magical event I have ever been before.
The event took place at Arena di Verona and it was Pharrell Williams who opened the show on Saturday an unforgettable evening followed with Opera, skating, pop combined with classical music and mind blowing settings and lighting effects.
Among Pharell Williams, I was more than exciting to meet the most beautiful women in the world and one of my favorite models – Ana Beatriz Barros, Bianca Balti and Irina Shayk. Here I want to share some photos of my weekend in Verona. Enjoy!

Verona-Opera-Pop-on-Ice-2014-disi-couture-018ez8ez3:30 pm – World Heritage-listed city’s most popular attraction – Casa di Giulietta. This house known as Juliet’s house was owned by the family dell Capello. The house dates from the 13th century and the family coat of arms can still be seen on the wall. Inside the house is a small museum and in the courtyard is a bronze sculpture of Juliet – people rub her right breast for luck. But the ultimate in romantic gesturing is the many love notes stuck on the walls and doors in the entrance to the courtyard.
