- Year: 2015
The only documentary authorized by Arrigo Cipriani, son of Giuseppe, the founder of Venice’s legendary Harry’s Bar.
A place that has now become a symbol of the lagoon as well as an overwhelming pole of attraction for artists and personalities from culture, politics, fashion and art. Over the years Harry’s Bar went on to become a crossroad for the world’s intellighentia and the most influent jet-setters.
Harry’s Bar has been declared a national treasure in 2001, and its name and formula have been repeatedly and vainly subject of imitation. Still to this date it continues to hold its unicity, being an inevitable destination for those who claim to really know Venice.
Over the years Harry’s Bar has collected a wide range of illustrious customers, such as Ernest Hemingway, ORSON WELLES, Liz Taylor, Maria Callas, Peter Fonda, Susan Sontag and many more, who have contributed to its legend, turning it into a temple of excellence and elegance and one of the most glamorous hangouts internationally.
Nowaday, celebrities such as John Le Carré and Zaha Hadid, Clooney and Giorgio Armani, François Pinault and Valentino keep the tradition alive and contribute to making Harry’s one of the most prestigious bars in the world.
WELCOME TO THE BAR !
A temple of taste, hospitality, and style.
