AN­DREA AMBRA AND GRAZIA IANNARELLI

This year has been a busy year for the Ital­ian Trade Com­mis­sioner An­drea Ambra and his wife Grazia Iannarelli with a slew of events that they have been re­spon­si­ble for. The par­ties in­clude the ‘60 Years of Made in Italy’ fash­ion ex­hi­bi­tion in Pav­il­ion KL and the Ital­ian Jew­ellery gala night at Shangri-La Ho­tel KL. “When­ever we or­gan­ise an event at the ho­tel, we feel at home and the ho­tel al­ways does an ex­cel­lent job. De­spite the size of the event, more of­ten than not it is a big suc­cess,” says the el­e­gant Grazia who finds Shangri-La to be her pre­ferred ho­tel choice to host any func­tion.

For per­sonal par­ties, the cou­ple pre­fer to do it at home. “Throw­ing par­ties is nor­mal for us. We do it on birthdays and for vis­it­ing friends. For our fam­ily, Christ­mas is a very big cel­e­bra­tion,” says An­drea, who we learn takes care of the wine while his wife does the rest. Grazia laughs as she adds, “I usu­ally or­gan­ise pri­vate par­ties with my hus­band as the guest!” Nonethe­less, she cites her ad­mi­ra­tion for her hus­band for his per­fec­tion­ism when it comes to party plan­ning: “He per­son­ally checks on ev­ery­thing and he doesn’t let any de­tails slip through his fin­gers,” adds this gra­cious host.
