The Swiss luxury watch manufacturer chose Milan as the location for its third Italian boutique, after Rome and Venice, to present its mechanical masterpieces. Pierfrancesco Favino, IWC Brand Ambassador, Alessia Marcuzzi, television host and actress, and the actress Anna Ferzetti, together with Beppe Ambrosini, Brand Manager IWC Italy, and Hannes Pantli, Board Member of IWC, cut the ribbon of the IWC boutique in Via Montenapoleone. The Swiss Maison celebrated the opening of its Milan boutique in the presence of some of the most important representatives of the Italian business world with an exclusive gala dinner at Ristorante Berton, one of the best-known locations in Porta Nuova, surrounded by the attractive setting of the new Milan skyline.
