One of the greatest performers and songwriters of all time, one of the most prestigious theatres in the world, a city as unique as Venice: Ferretti Group puts the accent on talent, exclusivity and beauty.

Yesterday evening, against the backdrop of the Gran Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Elton John gave an exclusive performance for the guests of Ferretti Group.

Elton John, whose international touring career recently came to an end with his glorious Farewell Tour, captivated the audience of more than 900 Ferretti Group guests with his greatest hits, in an emotional experience.

“It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside: in Venice, in the Gran Teatro La Fenice, only wonderful things can happen. We wanted to offer our friends an event of the same beauty of our boats and Ferretti Group’s incredible 2023. A huge thank you to Elton John, who last night gave an unforgettable performance, treating us all to a thrill every time he played the first chords of his magnificent songs. An incredible evening we’ll keep in our hearts for many years to come.”

Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO

The concert was in support of Save Venice, the no-profit organisation with a mission to preserve Venice’s artistic heritage and the Teatro La Fenice Foundation, of which Ferretti Group is supporting partner since 2021.

During the evening, Ferretti Group honoured its commitment to supporting the David Beckham UNICEF Fund, announcing the sale of the Riva Anniversario auctioned off to mark the 180th anniversary of Riva, with the entire proceeds donated to help children in El Salvador.

After the concert, to celebrate the event, Ferretti Group’s guests made their way to the Teatro La Fenice’s Sale Apollinee for an haute cuisine tasting by and with the Massimo Bottura Chef patron of the three-star Michelin Osteria Francescana.

The guests at the event had the opportunity to see the new wallywhy100 for the first time on the water.
