An impressive institutional event for clients and staff at the Ducal Palace of Modena in 2010.


Corporate Client Hosting Event


Sassuolo, Italy


Since 1741 Marca Corona has been producing pavements, ceramics, mosaic tiles and porcelain decorations, epitomizing the standards of excellence made in Italy.  The oldest ceramic company in Italy, Marca Corona is a part of history for one of the most important and world renown industries of the country.


Historically Marca Corona was the principal ceramic supplier of castles and estates of the House of Este, a principal European dynasty with an important history in Emilia Romagna, Italy.


The Ducal Palace of Sassuolo which is one of the House of Este’s Estates was the perfect regal backdrop for this client hosting event with 200 clients, executive staff and prospects.


Guests were welcomed along a majestically lit pathway to the  entrance of the Ducal Palace of Sassuolo where they were met with an architectural  video mapping performance on the facade of the magnificent building.


From there they were invited into the courtyard for an outdoor welcome cocktail complete with lit bars, custom cocktails, full lighting, and personalised branded carpet and displays.


Dinner was served in the interior Great Halls of the palace.  All aspects of the interior design for the evening were produced by Genius Progetti including under-lit tables with top-projected lights, centre-piece floral arrangements, fabric ceiling covers and custom gazebos and personalised commemorative videos that were projected throughout the dinning halls for an elegant yet professional setting.

To highlight the grandiose and majestic location, Genius Progetti created a full video mapping projection video on the façade of the Ducal Palace of Modena.


The show was set to music and interlaced elements from the Marca Corona ceramic collection into the context of the architectural elements of the Palace’s façade.
