This majestic event attracts the cream of the luxury CEOs. Francois Pinault (PPR Group) and Bernard Arnault (LVMH Group) usually make their grand entrances, and indulge in discreet art investments. And this year, Pinault, the owner of Christie’s, will allow patrons to admire his vast art collection at the Palazzo Grassi and the Dogana.
Miuccia Prada, the creative head of Prada, will also be there with bells on. It will be party central at the Prada Foundation, where the champagne will be flowing and the cash registers ringing – all in the name of art.
