On October 12, Palazzo Bovara in Milan will host a Christie’s charity auction as part of La Vendemmia, a one-week luxury event organised by Associazione MonteNapoleone. Wines on offer will be vintages from the Comitato Grandi Cru d’Italia, featuring coveted labels such as Ferrari, Ornellaia, Marchesi di Barolo and Antinori. Also up for auction will be special experiences, including dinners at award-winning restaurants, stays in private wineries with guided tastings and tours, and exclusive visits to museums. All profits will go to Dynamo Camp, which is part of the SeriousFun Children’s Network founded in 1988 by actor Paul Newman, and will enable 25 children affected by chronic diseases to go on a week’s holiday with their families.
