Ferragosto Spiaggia 2013 - Greg Chmiel

Spiaggia heads to Oak Street Beach in Chicago to celebrate Ferragosto, the Italian holiday that marks the start of the summer holiday period when Italians flock to the coast to frolic, eat and drink. A beachside evening was filled with Skuna Bay salmon, Prosciutto di Parma, Berkshire pigs, Peroni's, and Negroni slushies. Global Luxury Imports brought one of their beautiful Lamborghini Gallardo's right to the beach. The Remix Project had a different artist decorate every umbrella for Peroni, which were then auctioned off to benefit the Remix Project. The night ended with a photobooth session and smores!
