The Prize

Alberta Ferretti embodies style, femininity, elegance, sensuality and glamour.

Energy, grace and dedication are the qualities that have always distinguished Alberta Ferretti, "a woman close to women". Ferretti’s desire for beauty, charm and character is revealed at best through her cocktail and evening dresses.

International celebrities and socialites such as Sharon Stone, Sandra Bullock, Dua Lipa, Chiara Ferragni, Regina King, Amal Clooney, wear her creations on the most photographed red carpets worldwide.

The highest bidder will have the opportunity to experience a special fitting in their Alberta Ferretti boutique of choice (Milan, Rome, Paris or London) with a one of a kind VIP treatment by choosing a dress and a sandal from the Fall Winter 2021-22 collection.

The Cause

The Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia (MUVE) is responsible for eleven museums: the Doge’s Palace; the Museo Correr; the Torre dell’Orologio; Ca’ Rezzonico – Museum of the eighteenth-century Venice; Palazzo Mocenigo – Centre for the History of Textiles, Costume and Perfume; the Casa di Carlo Goldoni; Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art; Palazzo Fortuny; the Museo del Vetro di Murano (Murano glass museum); the Museo del Merletto di Burano (Burano lace museum); the Natural History Museum Giancarlo Ligabue of Venice. It boasts an immense cultural heritage, with over 700,000 works of art, five specialist libraries, a photographic archive and a well-equipped warehouse in the Vega Stock in Marghera.

This rich and complex museum system has been managed, protected and promoted by MUVE since its foundation in 2008. It has been recently enriched by two other important partnerships developing outside the historic centre of the city: with the Centro Culturale Candiani and Forte Marghera in Mestre. The Fondazione Musei Civici is a private entity reporting to a Board of Directors that manages a public heritage and which self-finances all its activities. It has only one founding member, the City of Venice.

In addition to traditional museum activities (recovery, conservation, study, promotion), it includes a wide range of cultural activities and services: research, training, dissemination, teaching, production of temporary events, in a ceaseless dialogue with the territory and its visitors. The Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia encourages the integration of public and private participating members that share and support its aims. It establishes and consolidates relationships with other national and international museums, and other cultural, scientific and educational institutions, and develops partnerships for specific projects with private subjects. Shared objectives are the implementation of international visibility and reputation and the development of virtuous and innovative local relationships, to be pursued with a high profile offer associated with maximum accessibility.
