In December 2017, for the second time, the company Zanaboni took part to the charity auction “Les Sapin Action Innocence Monaco“ providing an item from its collection, the pouf PICASSO in an elegant light velvet and golden studs, and a very special Christmas tree designed and created by the interior designers Tullia and Paolo Canciani.


The charity auction, conducted by Lionel Gosset, Auctioneer, Christie’s France, specialized in luxury and exclusive real estate services and sale of prestigious properties, auctioned by Etude de Me Escaut-Marquet, Monaco, and organized to raise funds for the NGO association AIM Action Innocence Monaco, a charity foundation that was established in 2002 by Madame Louisette Levy- Soussan Azzoaglio with the mission to preserve the dignity and integrity of children on the Internet. 

The event took place on December 14th, 2017 in the Hall of the prestigious Hotel de Paris in Monte-Carlo, beautifully adorned for this very special occasion and decorated with Christmas decorations and the Christmas trees donated by Zanaboni and other international brands such as Cartier, Hotel de Paris, Ferrero Kinder, Chopard, Repossi, Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort.Guests of the jet-set and even the Royal familyattended the prestigious party.


A very special concept was behind the project of the tree: in fact, it was designed to be a tribute to the bicentenary of the Prince’s of Monaco Carabinieri. 

Inspired by the subjects painted on wood, with details in bronze, leather and feathers, in vogue in ‘600 and ‘700, two Carabinieri guard a Christmas tree decorated with white and red ball ornaments. The base of the tree is placed inside a wooden cachepot box, painted in white and red rhombs.


Both the pouf and the tree, for the second year in a row, were selected and bought by S.A.S. the Prince Albert II de Monaco, who in turn donated the Christmas tree to the Chief of Carabinieri.

After the event of December 14th, the tree has been then placed in the Hall of the beautiful building that is venue to the Carabinieri station, Place du Palais in front of the Palace.
