VIDEO: Stars come out to celebrate with Riva

As part of its 180th anniversary this year Riva has created a short film starring three famous ‘friends of the brand’…

“Riva The Persuaders!” was inspired by the cult TV series and was made on the coast spanning the border between Italy, Monaco and the Côte d’Azur. The protagonists are Italian actor Pierfrancesco Favino, international football star David Beckham and Formula 1 driver Charles Leclerc.

Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO, said: “My thanks go to David Beckham, Pierfrancesco Favino and Charles Leclerc, who have shown their friendship towards Riva by contributing to a spectacular short film, one of those miracles that happen when champions are involved. I am also honored to introduce to the world the ‘Anniversario’, an iconic new boat, for very few lucky owners, and another masterpiece of outstanding elegance. Best wishes to Riva as it starts to write boating history for the next 180 years.”

The excitement began before the event started, when a floating platform moored on Venice’s Grand Canal, in front of the Riva Lounge at the Gritti Palace, provided a unique stage for the unveiling of the new Riva ‘Anniversario’, the special limited edition boat created to mark this iconic anniversary and also to pay tribute to the Aquarama on its 60th birthday.
