Rome wasn't built in a day, and Venice wasn't saved in just one party.

It's been 50 years since Save Venice first began its noble mission of preserving the artistic heritage of Italy's Adriatic gem. To fête the impressive anniversary, rather than their usual big bash, the nonprofit is hosting fifty celebrations across the globe, each more glamorous than the next!

This week, Casey Kohlberg and the Young Friends of Save Venice hosted Murano Nights, an intimate dinner held at New York's hottest new spot, Casa Cipriani. Guests dressed in their ‘Glittering Cocktail’ best (we may have a new favorite dress code!) were greeted with classic Cipriani Bellinis and white Negronis, and treated to an inspired performance by the Brooklyn Ballet titled Sonic Relief.
