In continued celebration of the opening of their newest flagship property, the Bvlgari Hotel Roma, the Italian luxury brand has released a documentary showcasing all the intricate details that went into the project. The unprecedented documentary film delves into each facet of the design and finishing touches that make this the newest gem in the Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts collection. The documentary is an intriguing behind-the-scenes journey featuring celebrity brand ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas, produced by Atomic Production and directed by Andrea Rovetta.

While it might seem like a super self-congratulatory thing to do, make a documentary about how awesome your new luxury hotel is; once you start watching, you understand why they did it. The film showcases the artistry, thought, and dedication of this undertaking. We learn the history behind why each specific artisan, material, colour, and even the physical site of the hotel was chosen.  The chandeliers, hand-painted chinaware, handmade tiles, curtains, and pillows are all a love letter to the Italian artisanal legacy. Each artisan featured in the film embodies the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship, turning the hotel into a monument to Italy’s rich heritage.

Finally, to honour the opening of the hotel in its home city, Bvlgari created a piece of High Jewellery: a yellow gold necklace featuring an original Roman coin with Emperor Augustus, adorned with 149 emerald beads, 80 buff-top emeralds and 40 ct. worth of pavé-set diamonds.

The documentary, An Emperor’s Jewel – The Making of the Bvlgari Hotel Roma, is now available on Amazon Prime.
