On May 23rd Wainbridge and BVLGARI HOTELS & RESORTS officially announced the launch of the BVLGARI Residences Moscow celebrating the occasion with an Italian musical evening for selected guests. Just for one night a blooming spring garden arose amidst the Rakhmaninov hall of the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory where famous opera diva Khibla Gerzmava sang Donizetti, Puccini and Bellini interpreted in an original manner together with the jazz group of Jacob Okun.
The legendary venue was not chosen by chance: the future project is to be developed within the historic mansion nearby. Moreover, the Conservatory itself has long been the musical and cultural centre of Moscow. It is the most prestigious stage to perform at as well as the first place to go for those seeking «a feast for the soul» and «the ultimate luxury of the art experience». That was a greatly consistent environment for the project concept to be revealed to distinguished guests, and it was done in an expressively spring mood.
In his opening speech, the project investor Alexey Bogachev briefly presented the concept: «While thinking about launching the BVLGARI Residences in Moscow, we wanted to develop a space that would be second to none for the city as to its quality, beauty, elegance and service. . Embracing legendary service of BVLGARI Jewellery Maison and its own history as well as magnificent design by Italian architectural firm helped us to make it happen combined at this iconic location. I am glad to realize that very soon you will be able to appreciate all this

A legendary figure in the hotel business, Attilio was a head of the first BVLGARI hotel in Milan for over decade and today manages the entire team of the dynamic luxurious BVLGARI properties network - from Milan and London to Shanghai and Bali. Attilio said a few words about the complex, which would soon appear behind the historic facade of the Count Razumovsky’s house of 18th century: «After the recent sensational exhibition The Magnificent Roman jewels at the Kremlin, BVLGARI is going to surround you with the Magnificent Roman hospitality. Today, as you see, the Italian garden has already miraculously bloomed here
