“Ciao Bella!” is the first dine, wine & art experience in the world created to be combined with an NFT.
Heinz Beck (La Pergola, Waldorf Astoria Roma ***), Marco Bottega (Aminta, Genazzano *), Max Mascia (San Domenico, Imola **), Sara Preceruti (Acquada, Milan) and Alessandro Miceli (Executive Chef of Bella Restaurant & Lounge) are the great chefs who will sign the NFT (Non Fungible Token) that will immortalize this initiative, and will go down in history. With them there will be Federica Boffa (Pio Cesare), Gianni Gagliardo and Filippo Vanni for Barone Ricasoli, representing the great wines that will be served.
The NFTs are a fast-growing phenomenon in the world of the digital assets and represent a new frontier for collectors of art, but they are starting to spread in other fields as well.
The NFT tokens will be issued by the Italian Wine Crypto Bank®, the first global wine bank of its kind that combines investment-grade wines, blockchain and cryptocurrencies, which is based in Hong Kong but has its technological heart in Dubai (https://italianwinecryptobank.io/). The IWCB has just launched the first cryptocurrency entirely linked to wine that can be acquired under special conditions here: https://italianwinecryptobank.io/product/iwb-italian-wine-bank-token/
The menu of the NFT evening at Bella is an original creation painted at the moment by the Dutch artist DamaIn, and will be signed by the protagonists and destroyed at the end of the evening, by a flambé made of 30-year-old Italian brandy. The artistic value of the work will then be transferred to the NFT and its owners will benefit from it, who will then be able to exchange it in the future on the collectors’ market.
