Charity and glamour the keywords at Milano Marittima

Great success for the Chi magazine summer party “By Moonlight”, the exclusive event founded on charity that took place on Thursday, 27 June at the Palace Hotel in Milano Marittima. The editor-in-chief of Chi, Massimo Borgnis, together with the magazine’s editorial director, Alfonso Signorini, were the hosts of a special evening dedicated to glamour and charity.

After the “Let’s Help Emilia-Romagna Together” fundraiser launched last year by Mondadori Media with Banca Mediolanum, Chi decided to continue its commitment to this region, collecting the entire amount needed to support the purchase of a state-of-the-art ultrasound scanner (the second of its kind in Italy) for the work of the Infant and Paediatric Neonatology Department of the Rimini Hospital at Gala Dinner 2024. 

The were many guests that evening, from Milly Carlucci to Michelle Hunziker, from Elisabetta Gregoraci to Orietta Berti, and again Perla and Mirko, Sophie Codegoni, Samira Lui, Beatrice Luzzi and many Taag! talents, like Margherita Zanatta, Antonella Fiordelisi, Elen Ellis and Alice de Bortoli. 

Chi ‘s association with the Batani Select Hotels Groupalso continued with this initiative: the Palace Hotel in Milano Marittima, a five-star hotel belonging to the Batani Group, was the setting for the large invitation-only party ‘By Moonlight’. On the new Milano Marittima waterfront, VIPs and entrepreneurs paraded in anticipation of the placée dinner on the beach.

During the after party, which also took place on the hotel’s private beach, which was transformed into an exclusive club with musical performances, DJ sets, an open bar and many corners that provided guests with entertainment and fun, The Kolors performed their most popular hits. Orietta Berti treated those present to a medley of songs, then left the stage to the DJ set, organised by Visit Romagna and the anticipation of the Notte Rosa, which will take place on the first weekend of July throughout the Romagna Riviera.

A special partner for this edition was Food Network, with whom Chi launched the new TV format where Massimo Borgnis and Roberto Valbuzzi travel around Italy describing the ‘Locande del cuore‘. Roberto Valbuzzi, a much-loved chef and TV personality, co-signed the charity dinner menu with Palace Hotel executive chef, Roberto Scarpelli.
