During the wedding planning one of the most difficult choice is the wedding reception venue.
But for Alessia and Gianluca it was easy. They fell in love at first sight with Palazzo Penotti Ubertini.
Some moths before the event Alessia and Gianluca visited Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta looking for the right venue for their wedding reception.
During their visit Palazzo Ubertini was hosting Elio Barabino’s exhibition. He is a painter from Genova. His paintings are real color explosions reminding Van Gogh and Gaugin styles. Alessia and Gianluca are fond of Genovese painter and in that occasion they asked to Palazzo owner to keep the paintings on for their reception at Palazzo Penotti Ubertini. They were happy to know that the owners said yes!

Late evening the party ended with the cutting of the cake and a lovely photo with the owner of the Palazzo: Stefano Ubertini. He is the owner of this amazing building established back in 1700. He is really happy to keep it alive.
