Nestlé WatersCucina S.Pellegrino


Design a premium event concept for S.Pellegrino during Cannes Film Festival:

• Embody Italian spirit, prestige and gastronomy (three fundamental brand pillars)

• Reinforce the partnership with Cannes Film Festival established 5 years ago

• Generate media impact

• Promote the operation for the global premium audience at Cannes


“The Cucina S.Pellegrino, when movie stars meet gastronomy stars.”

For the 68th International Film Festival of Cannes, S.Pellegrino created a prestigious starry host table to cultivate the love of fine drinking and dining, glamor and the Italian way of life.


Public relations operation built around two main elements during the Festival:

  1. An ephemeral host table far from the turmoil of the Croisette

Every day, a different starred French chef (Jacques Chibois, Mauro Colagreco, Ronan Kervarrec, Stéphanie Le Quellec, Cyril Lignac, Nicolas Navarro and Michel Roth) prepared a gastronomic tailor-made lunch for a celebrity and 12 guests, on a lovely hidden rooftop in the centre of Cannes.

  1. Press junket

Every morning and afternoon, Cucina S.Pellegrino hosted a press junket, photo shoot and interviews.
