A great outcome for the Moonlight Party, an authentic tribute to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Live music, artistic performances and sophisticated dishes of the chef Massimo Innocenti made the evening magical. A real welcome to the summer.
It’s been 50 years since the first landed man on the Moon. It was in fact July 21st, 1969 when Neil Armstrong, as part of the Apollo 11 mission, changed the history of mankind forever.
The Moon, that is the symbol of everything we yearn for, romantic, inspiration of sonnets, ballads, songs, novels, poems, the one that made possible the development of technologies that seemed futuristic but they are now of common use, was yesterday at the center of MOONLIGHT PARTY, a fantastic evening to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the landing on the Moon, wanted by Eduardo Montefusco, “patron” of Casina Valadier and President of the RDS group.

Montefusco says: “An event that confirms the positioning and the DNA of Casina Valadier, Food & Music entertainment for unforgettable experiences. Our goal is to make any celebration and anniversary unique and memorable, thanks to the strong emotions given by the music, and by the excellent and sophisticated food, all framed by an amazing location”.
An evening that became magical at sunset, thanks to the evocative effects created by the performer and artist Giacomo Lion, who created his geometric suggestions based on the moon. And yet an installation composed by white cotton illuminated threads and by white and bright spheres scattered in the park of Casina Valadier, to recreate many small moons.
An extraordinary frame for the 1700 guests, all dressed in white, in perfect compliance with the dress code required. Among them, the famous and beloved speakers of RDS Anna Pettinelli, Rossella Brescia and Sergio Friscia. All of them had the opportunity to satisfy their palates thanks to the dishes prepared by Massimo D’Innocenti, chef of Casina Valadier, who studied a special menu inspired by the Moon.
The chef states: “These parties are always exciting. This is the fourth year that we celebrate summer here at Casina Valadier, and every year we do something more important. For this evening, we have prepared 12,500 portions, with great care of the food and presentations. A great team work, even if now the pastry chefs hate me!”
In the middle of the park, a splendid and flamboyant Lamborghini, a perfect synthesis of technology and elegance, in addition to the great reliability represented by the L’Automobile Roma Group.
Elegant and refined also the soundtrack by the band composed of 6 elements, directed by Giuseppe Iodice and with the voice of Chiara Vecchio, who played and sang suggestive songs dedicated to the Moon, such as Moonlight Serenade by Glenn Miller, Blue Moon by Billie Holiday, Fly me to the moon by Frank Sinatra, Moonlight Shadow by Mike Oldfield, Dancing in the moonlight by Toploader and Man in The Moon by REM.
At the end, everyone on the dance floor with the DJs of Dimensione Suono Soft.
An evening illuminated by the moon.
