Timeless art, modern luxury

Transcending the narrative of one hotel to showcase the artistry and dedication woven into the entire Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts collection, the documentary provides a comprehensive look at how Bvlgari consistently creates extraordinary hospitality experiences worldwide, with meticulous attention to detail and the finest materials.

Italian craftsmanship

Starting with the restoration of the breathtaking building, the documentary showcases the different phases of the intricate renovation. It took more than 50 days of filming to capture the backstage work of the craftsmen who brought centuries of expertise and tradition to the creation of the Bvlgari Hotel Roma. The artisans give a rare testimony of the immense love and passion behind their craft, genuinely expressing the joy of ‘working with their heart and hands’ to create unique pieces with a ‘soul’.

Attention to detail

From the made-to-measure textiles and the Murano chandeliers, to the bespoke mosaic artworks together with the hand-painted chinaware and the handmade tiles, we get to see the making process of all the masterpieces adorning the hotel, showcasing Italian artisanal legacy. Each artisan featured in the film embodies the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship, turning the hotel into a living testament of Italy's rich heritage and dedication to excellence on a global stage.

Showcasing the making of such a majestic project was an unmissable opportunity to bring an incredible example of Italian excellence in craftsmanship, design and hospitality to the public on screen. We are very proud to have finally completed this film, which is the result of a two-year journey of pure beauty.
