The + symbol in the Tissot logo represents the Swiss quality and reliability that have characterized the Brand since 1853.
Being an innovator by tradition is for Tissot the expression of its DNA which translates into a philosophy of democracy towards its customers. The constant commitment in the search for advanced features and innovative materials has accompanied the Swiss brand since its origins and is still reflected in all its collections today.
The study of details through meticulous design care attracts the attention of the poet, artist and philosopher Ettore Sottsass who chooses Tissot for the realization of a watch through which show the strength of his creativity and his brilliant intuition. In 1988 Tissot Sottsass watch is born, celebrating today its thirtieth anniversary.
Since then the Maison has always collaborated alongside important designers spreading its fame in over 160 countries around the world.

The historic Venice company Rubelli creates, produces and sells furnishing products, in particular fabrics, for both residential and contract use. The brand portfolio includes, alongside Rubelli Venezia and Rubelli Casa, also the proprietary brands Donghia and Dominique Kieffer by Rubelli, as well as the Armani Casa Exclusive Textiles by Rubelli licence.
Rubelli is able to monitor all phases of the production process thanks to its style department where designers with technical, artistic and history skills work and to its own mill in Como, recently expanded.
The company also owns a comprehensive historical archive holding over 7000 textile documents, a precious source of inspiration for new collections and for special projects.
Rubelli has a presence in Venice, Milan, Rome, Paris, London, Moscow and Dubai and in ten US cities with own showrooms and, via an extensive distribution network, in over eighty-five countries.
With links to the world of culture and the arts from the outset, Rubelli supports museums and young designers, organises exhibitions and periodically promotes events in Italy and elsewhere.

The "Antica Fabbrica Passamanerie Massia" (Massia Vittorio Old Passementerie Factory), under the management of the same family, is the oldest Passementerie in Europe.
The company has been active in weaving since 1685; a supplier of the Royal House of Savoy since 1843, its items adorn and embellish garments and furnishings not only in castles, palaces, theatres, nobility’s residences, but also in private apartments, sometimes gaining access into the world of design and fashion. In this long period of time, the company has been transformed and renewed without ever losing its personal tradition and its prestigious history, a heritage that it is considered as an essential added value.
Having always been able to go beyond its historical baggage and follow new trends, these days its artefacts are increasingly regarded as a peculiar and tangible form of art, as the Massia family knows how to create articles that belong, in a visionary way, to the contemporary scene. Ancient recipes, handed down from father to son for six generations, are the foundation that makes possible for the Antica Fabbrica Massia Vittorio 1843 (Massia Vittorio Old Factory 1843) not only to create new articles, but also to preserve and restore unique items and accessories.

Senato Caffè & Franciacorta Bar

Senato Caffè & Franciacorta Bar represents the partnership between Senato Hotel Milano and Franciacorta. Senato Caffè – the hotel’s bistrot and café— hosts the first urban Franciacorta bar in the world. Here, a precise Franciacorta list features a rotating selection of cantine throughout the year, giving the possibility to taste different wine varieties and producers.
Senato Hotel Milano embodies the quintessential Milanese style: a natural sophistication mixed with an understated luxury.

The 19th-century building has belonged to the same family for four generations, and is still run by them today. Following the example set by Achille Castiglioni and Gio Ponti, architect Alessandro Bianchi oversaw every facet of the project, from floor plan to furniture design. Black, white, green and gold dominate the sleek and stylish interiors with custom-made furnishings made by local craftsmen. Other striking elements of style are the interplay of symmetry and asymmetry; a reflecting pool in the inner courtyard that pays homage to the pre-existing navigli canals, the white façade in contrast with the black impluvium.

This independent hotel, proudly posting the continuous high scores in guests reviews, has also increasingly become a pin on the city events’ map.

Franciacorta wines have a long and distinguished history, although we are more familiar with recent events.
It was back in 1967 that 11 producers of modern Franciacorta, who together cultivated 29 hectares of vineyards, began producing 2,000 hectoliters of Pinot di Franciacorta, the initial step towards the success that the Franciacorta method has enjoyed in the years that followed. The first official recognition dates back to 1967, when by Presidential Decree the Franciacorta area was awarded the status of Controlled Designation of Origin (DOC).
Another two decades passed before 29 producers decided to unite, on 5 March 1990, and form the Consorzio volontario per la tutela dei vini Franciacorta, i.e. the Consortium for the promotion of Franciacorta wines. Franciacorta was the first Italian wine produced exclusively using the bottle fermentation to obtain (in 1995) the status of Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin (DOCG). In the same year, the Franciacorta production method was officially recognized and distinguished from “vino spumante”, or sparkling wine.
Today the labels read ‘Franciacorta’, a single word that defines the area, the production method and the wine itself.
