What are an American Academy Award-winning actor, an Ukrainian ballet dancer from the Bolshoi Theatre and an Italian Formula 1 driver doing in Milan? And what do they have in common?
If you haven't heard, this week Milan is buzzing with the Salone Internazionale del Mobile and a myriad of hot new events.
One of these is being staged by Audemars Piguet. The watch brand is showcasing a unique exhibition celebrating the 40th anniversary of their iconic Royal Oak model. This Thursday night, a special gala event will give extra lustre to the exhibition (which runs until 22 April), with high-profile celebrities from around the globe. Dropping in this evening are Adrien Brody, Svetlana Zakharova and Jarno Trulli.
