On the occasion of the 80th edition of the Venice International Film Festival, Giorgio Armani will bring One Night Only Venezia to the lagoon, an event to celebrate cinema and to pay tribute to the city that most symbolizes it. 

The event will be held on Saturday 2 September at the Arsenale and will entail an evening party preceded by an Haute Couture show. 

Giorgio Armani returns to Venice, reaffirming his connection with the film festival, which began in 1990 with the world premiere of the famous documentary film Made in Milan directed by Martin Scorsese and the big party hosted by the designer to honor the director at Ca’ Leone on Giudecca. 

The evening marks a new destination for the One Night Only series, which has so far visited some of the most important cities in the world: London in 2006, Tokyo in 2007, Beijing in 2012, Rome and New York in 2013, Paris in 2014, and Dubai in 2021. 

Giorgio Armani’s cinema celebration also includes the renewed partnership of Armani beauty as a Main Sponsor of the Festival. For the sixth consecutive year, Armani beauty will provide the official make-up service to the guests. 

Following on from previous events in Dubai and St. Moritz, One Night Only Venice 2023 has been specifically designed to have minimum environmental impact, in compliance with ISO 20121. The Armani Group will offset all residual greenhouse gas emissions linked to the event by supporting environmental projects that aim to preserve the ecological equilibrium of the Venetian Lagoon and restore its ecosystem and biodiversity. In addition, the Group has decided to make a donation to support the non-profit organisation ‘We are here in Venice’, which conducts research aimed at protecting the lagoon and improving understanding of the societal value that this unique environment offers.
