The "lounge by the sea" in Porto Cervo is back to light up the promenade of the Porto Vecchio harbour and is ready to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the birth of the Costa Smeralda Consortium. From 26 June to 5 September, it will be possible to spend evenings in the company of some of the most exclusive brands inside the Waterfront, the Costa Smeralda's most awaited pop-up shopping centre.
For 60 years, Waterfront Costa Smeralda has been a synonym for excellence and absolute style, where every space is designed to amaze and entertain. Italian artist Marco Lodola decided to pay homage to the location by dedicating an exclusive artwork entitled Venus. Inspired by the famous Venus by Botticelli, it was designed in the artist's iconic style and will illuminate the Waterfront during the summer evenings.
Several events will accompany the summer evenings at the Waterfront, such as the presentation of the book Costa Smeralda published by the New York publishing house Assouline, as well as shows and meetings with leading cultural personalities who will entertain the Waterfront audience.
"A special edition of the Waterfront, in a very special year that sees Costa Smeralda celebrating its first sixty years and which will undoubtedly succeed in making the new season in Costa Smeralda even more unique and memorable thanks to a wide range of exclusive lounging offers, the presence of luxury brands within the PODs, great art and this year's absolute novelty, the signature Costa Smeralda boutique designed to celebrate its birthday". - Mario Ferraro, CEO of Smeralda Holding
