On 3 July, the beautiful Abbey of San Pastore was the setting of EMEC’s fortieth-anniversary celebrations. The company, established in 1982, has been growing ever since, expanding its presence in Italy and across Europe. Over these years, EMEC has shifted from being a family-run business to a leading international company. That’s why this year, we decided to celebrate this milestone and the whole team in style.
The recurrent theme of the event was water. An exciting Water Ball sphere performance kicked off the evening, while guests could enjoy a finger-food cocktail party on the poolside. Bartenders at Hunting Club & Co’s pop-up bar created exclusive green cocktails with Hoshizaki ice cubes personalised with the waves of EMEC’s pictogram.
Another essential element of the event was Rieti. The catering was entrusted to the two Michelin-star restaurant “La Trota” in Rivodutri (Rieti), which served local gourmet dishes and excellent wines.
The floral decoration was provided by “I Giardini di Mafalda”, a flower farm in Rieti that uses only seasonal, pesticide-free flowers and where plastic is banned. I Giardini di Mafalda also decorated the beautiful backdrop at the Abbey entrance. The backdrop was designed by EMEC’s Marketing department and made by Stipa.
Between courses, diners were entertained with a series of performances, including aerial dance choreographies by Art Directors Roberta Pitrone and Leonardo Bonfitto, and the explosive show by Alessandro De Angelis and his band. The presenter, Francesco Sarzi, introduced the various speeches from the management and branches and the moment when gifts were exchanged.
The evening continued in the abbey cloister with the cake made by Pasticceria Napoleone, the longstanding pastry shop in Rieti and EMEC’s old friend. Then, it was time for the last water ball performance, where a charming acrobat danced gracefully in water.
It was a thoroughly entertaining evening where nothing was left to chance, and all the participants felt part of the EMEC family. Even children were pampered and entertained by Tata Mary’s staff with shows, games, and a dedicated menu.
