proudly presents his latest project

The Spiros Loverdos Foundation / Library, that unique historical, architectural, cultural landmark, a 1907 building by the great philhellene Ernst Ziller, which houses the rich collection of rare books, along with the crème de la crème collection of his brother’s Dionysios of byzantine icons, after a long period of 40 years of inactiveness, is finally getting a reboot, a relaunch, a rebirth. 

And it gloriously reopens as an aesthete και eclectic events venue, the FONDAZIONE, ready to host any kind of corporate, private, social or cultural events!

Restless, ever-changing, multifaceted doer concept maker GEORGIOS T CARABELLAS totally respects this precious aura from the past and as Creative Director / Curator redefines and relaunches it giving that certain je ne sais quoi, creating in his signature out-of-the-box way current set-ups. Mise-en-scene is the conceptual medium. New modern “Salons Litteraires” is the fabulous end result.


The elaborate, detailed altal-like woodwork, hand-crafted by wise masters from Cephalonia, true masterpieces, the private chapel, the antiques, the design items, the 6 metres long tables, the 8 metres high ceilings, the oriental carpets, the crystals, the chandeliers, so much in abundance they just lay nonchalantly on the floor! A magical lay out, that spreads over more than 700mq. 

The FONDAZIONE Grand Opening is taken to a whole new level with the stunning botanical gardens, the 100-year-old olive trees, the enormous plane trees, the cypress trees, the mediterranean herb garden, the ideal backdrop for the sophisticated get-togethers of the bon vivants back in the day, when everyone who was anyone was to be spotted here.

The swimming pool with the Positano red lounge chairs, the marble benches designed by none other than Constantinos Parthenis, the hand-painted vintage tiles, the spirit of the place beautifully redone.

An old money ambiance in the very heart of the chic suburb, totally current and du jour.
FONDAZIONE events venue can host any kind of corporate, private, social or cultural events!

FONDAZIONE / LES SALONS LITTERAIRES

The Spiros Loverdos Foundation / Library, that unique historical, architectural, cultural landmark, a 1907 building by the great philhellene Ernst Ziller, which houses the rich collection of rare books, along with the crème de la crème collection of byzantine icons of his brother’s Dionysios, after a long period of 40 years of inactiveness, it has already gotten a reboot, a relaunch, a rebirth, and it has gloriously reopened as the talk of the town aesthete και eclectic events venue, the FONDAZIONE, ready to host any kind of corporate, private, social and cultural events!

FONDAZIONE / LES SALONS LITTERAIRES
Back in the older days, the bourgeois had not only money, but profound cultural essence and they always seeked aesthetics, creativity, ethics. They used to gather in such places to enjoy a poetry reading, an intimate concert, theatre or indulged themselves into epicurian bliss. Back then.

Today, alongside the booking of FONDAZIONE for a corporate, private, social and cultural event, such soirees will occur once again under the much semantic title ‘’LES SALONS LITTERAIRES’’, in a current and updated way, exploring all possible creative pillars, from fashion to theatre, from art to design, from literature to taste and music, to name but a few. Lifestyle redefined!

The vision is clear, as it has always been for GEORGIOS THISSEAS CARABELLAS for the past 25 years in all of his projects. To convey as much as possible once again to the society aesthetics, creativity, ethics, for which he is beyond certain, judging from the total acceptance of the FONDAZIONE, since major personas form all aspects of today’s creative universe are eager to ‘’produce culture’’, as they very well put it. Synergies!

In glorious rooms reminiscent of Members Clubs in London, the aesthete και eclectic FONDAZIONE aficionados will by popular demand be part of that unique vibe, where heritage and tradition meet current concepts. 

Stay tuned!
