Now in its 23rd year, the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore (ICCS) is once again gathering the greats of Italia in its annual Gala to celebrate the excellence of Italian entrepreneurship. The theme of this year, ‘Be Your Own Hero’, comes as a nod to the leaders in our community spearheading the blossoming relationship between Singapore and Italy in all measures—bringing both business and culture exchange in the most meaningful of ways.
As such, it makes perfect sense that the world’s leading luxury automotive manufacturer, Ferrari comes on as the event’s main sponsor in the gala as they did in the previous year. Crafted with love and passion in Maranello, a town nestled in the heart of Italy—the automaker is easily the very embodiment of the Italian spirit.
As an effort to bring more attention to the Italian names growing in our shores, the night will also see leading brands across varying sectors—from Venchi and San Pellegrino to Palazzo di Varignana and Pirelli.
And as the famous saying goes: speak English, kiss French and dress Italian—the latter certainly stands, as sharp tailoring and luxury designs has long been synonymous with the country since the 11th century, and the fashion industry has played an integral part of the country’s fame globally. Home to the world’s leading designers, Milan has long been a creative hotbed for expertise and craftsmanship in pursuit of the mastery of beauty and its various forms.
It is precisely this taste for the aesthetic that forms the very basis of Italy’s culture. In celebration of the special evening by ICCS—fashion powerhouse Max Mara will be taking to the runway to showcase their latest collection, complemented with exquisite jewellery from Domenico Alessi for a night of fashion, creativity and fun.
The ICCS Gala Night 2023 will be held on Friday, December 1st, 2023, at the Fullerton Bay Hotel Clifford Pier. For more information and ticketing, please visit ICCS official website here.
