In a fantastic night at Dubai’s DIFC, Bulgari (Instagram) illuminated the night sky with the grand opening of the “Serpenti Factory” and the mesmerizing “75 Years of Infinite Tales” exhibition. The iconic Serpenti emblem took center stage, casting a spellbinding display of projection mapping on the Gate Building, painting the Dubai skyline with its radiant allure. It was a magical convergence of luxury and artistry.

The Serpenti Factory is set to serve as a cultural bridge, uniting Middle Eastern and Italian heritage. This initiative not only elevates Dubai as an emerging haven for artists but also showcases the talents of local artists. Bulgari, with the House’s deep respect for the region and its vibrant art scene, collaborated with gifted local artists including Azza Al Qubaisi, Dr. Azra Khamissa, and Dr. Afra Atiq. Drawing inspiration from the Serpenti’s rich heritage, these artists breathed new life into Bulgari’s iconic symbol.

Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO of Bulgari Group, said of the exhibition’s opening, ““For 75 years, the emblematic Serpenti sign has represented Bulgari’s unique design with audacity and contemporary vision. It draws inspiration from the past in the era of Cleopatra and has become the protagonist of a wonderful tale that continues today, made of creativity, excellent craftsmanship, and modern spirit. It has been able to stand by the women who have worn it, enhancing their personality. We are happy to be able to celebrate this Icon so dear to the Brand with the Serpenti Factory in Dubai, marking the first exhibition of its kind in the Middle East”.
