Conference Banquet

The Banquet will be held in the one-star Michelin restaurant Saddle» on Monday, May 27th, starting at 7:30 PM.

The dining room is a timeless space of broad sophistication where basic elements predominate: marble, wood, and brass. A roomy, luminous place thanks to the huge skylight that covers it from wall to wall and extends over our interior garden. To one side of it there is a panoramic view of the kitchen, which is the core of the restaurant.
