Unique Partnerships

“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.”

HENRY FORD

It has always been our goal at IC Bellagio to be the best company to travel with and the best company to work with, putting our travelers, suppliers and staff at the center of what we do. Just as our carefully vetted suppliers are chosen to give our travelers the best Italy has to offer, our unique partnerships are all about adding value for our clients in areas complimentary to our own. We invite you to get to know our partners and learn how we work together to provide the best service and services for our customers.

Originally from Colorado, Vogelle founder and designer, Laura Vogel, spent an exchange semester studying international business at Universitá Bocconi in Milan in 2019. It was during this time that her lifelong dream of owning an international fashion brand became her reality. After spending months traveling throughout Italy and studying the value of Italian manufacturing, Laura began seeking out handbag manufacturers near Milan. Her goal was to bring high quality and minimal designs to women around the world at an affordable price. 

Vogelle started with one small shoulder bag design and has since grown to include crossbody bags, tote bags, bum bags, wallets, and more. Laura lives in Denver, Colorado and sells her bags to customers around the world. She designs all of her collections herself and each Vogelle piece is completely handmade just outside of Milan by a small team of luxury leather artisans. As a frequent traveler, Laura seeks inspiration from trends that are seen around the world. She also highlights the benefit of travel and more specifically, solo female travel, throughout her brand. It was through her love for travel that she gained exposure to worldwide fashion and found the confidence to start her own business at a young age.

In 2019 the world welcomed 2.5 billion international tourism arrivals. More than any other year in history. In the next 10 years, according to the UNWTO, Brookings Institute and others, the world’s middle class will have increased by a further 1.5 billion and history has taught us that once we achieve middle class status and have disposable income which accompanies it, we want to spend it on travelling and exploring our wonderful world. This means that in the next 10 years, the world will potentially welcome twice the number of tourists which we had in 2019 – a year when we first started to see incidences of overtourism.

Here at IC Bellagio we aim to play our part in easing the tourism peaks by proactively endorsing the many wonderful low season experiences which travellers can find right here in Italy. As such, in 2019, IC Bellagio became a Founder Partner of Low Season Traveller – the world’s first travel organisation which is entirely dedicated to the promotion, education and inspiration of travel solely during the low season months in each destination. We have not only fully supported and endorsed the work of Low Season Traveller since its inception, but we have also helped to research and create all of the Italian Low Season Guides which you can find on the platform. The future for sustainable year-round tourism in Italy is bright and our Founder, Andrea Grisdale, is keen to ensure it remains this way as she now also has a seat on the Advisory Board of Low Season Traveller too.

In May 2016, IC Bellagio Andrea Grisdale was appointed as Italy’s first-ever Regional Member of the World Travel & Tourism Council. As the global authority on the economic and social contribution of travel and tourism, Andrea is proud to work with the WTTC in its mission to promote sustainable growth for the travel industry and to create jobs, drive exports and generate prosperity. Through advocacy work with governments and international institutions – like a trip to Brussels to meet with the President of the European Parliament – and through participation in global events – like the annual Leaders Forum, which has welcomed such as keynote speakers as former US President Obama – Andrea is grateful to be able to use her knowledge, skills and experience at the WTTC to help improve tourism in Italy as well as the profile of IC Bellagio.

Designers Kate and Shawn Boyer at Anatomie are passionate about redefining modern designer travel wear for a style-conscious international clientele. Right from our first meeting, we were blown away by the quality and style of Anatomie’s apparel and drawn to their focus on clothing made expressly for the jetsetter lifestyle. What’s more, their Italian-inspired designs and made-in-Italy fabrics made this a cross-selling marriage made in heaven. Get in touch with us to find out what’s in this unique partnership for you!

This inspiring non-profit organization in nearby Limbiate breeds and trains seeing-eye dogs to help the sightless community master their everyday challenges and fully live up to their potential. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Cani Guida Limbiate, 50 guide dogs go to the families that need them most every year – but many more are still on the waiting list. IC Bellagio has committed to supporting their mission by donating one euro for each of our travelers to the Servizio Cani Guida dei Lions and by fostering one of the organization’s puppies. As a so-called “Puppy Walker”, we are hosting black lab puppy Frida from the age of 3 to 12 months when she will be ready to begin her formal guide dog training. It is our hope that our donations will help enrich the lives of the sightless by giving them the independence and confidence that comes with having a seeing-eye dog. If you are interested in joining us to support this worthy cause, you can wire transfer a donation to

IC Bellagio is delighted to announce the beginning of a new partnership with EMMA Firenze, specializing in the production of luxury tailored products for dogs, or using their words, lifetime companions.  A brand that reflects the unique aspects of Florence, where art unites with the excellence of the most refined craftsmanship in the world. Exclusively, Made in Italy, EMMA Firenze is the perfect partner for IC Bellagio with whom they are aligned in so many ways.  

IC Bellagio and EMMA Firenze not only share a mutual respect for our four-legged friends, and their dignity they also share the aim for the utmost attention to the smallest details in order to offer unique products.  Products that are personalized, made to measure and where beauty quite clearly goes hand in hand with tradition.

IC Bellagio guests will have the opportunity to visit Simone Fammoni at his Atelier Studio in the heart of Florence and enjoy his incredible journey from Interior Designer to the creator of the Emma Firenze brand. The stories about each and every step involved in the stages of production from the best sources of raw materials to the best Artisans to create these individual pieces is truly second to none.  

For us, at IC Bellagio – It’s all about the People and conveying this way of being with our travelers. Simone, his story, his beautiful studio and products will, without a doubt, be something our guests will remember for years to come.

Collegamenti

IC Bellagio is proud to support this innovative art studio run by Lianne Schreuder, Dutch native and Lake Como transplant who has been working for years with people affected by autism and mental or physical disabilities. Through art, Lianne helps people reach outside the limits of their disabilities, achieve autonomy and social legitimacy as artists and more fully express themselves. To finance her valuable work, Collegamenti offers a “roaming gallery” of artworks created in her studio for offices, companies, hotels, restaurants or homes – like the pop-up gallery of Collegamenti’s artwork that featured at our 15thanniversary “Gold Party”.
