Comte Visconti escorts his grand-daughter, Ariana, to a pre-wedding ball as her beau is called up urgently to work overtime. They meet Lorenzo de Constanzo who asks her to dance the first waltz but she wonders how he met the Comte and why he's there without his fiancee-to-be. . .
Hundreds of people came to Piha for the annual Longboat Competitions off South Beach. A full-on water sport for both men and women, it had its thrills and spill out there riding the 4 metre waves. Great stuff!
Welcome to the streets of Rome - the Eternal City.
I take your hand and guide you to
the Via Condotti, a mecca for the wealthy & the centre of fashion shopping
where the lovely Ariana Visconti works as a jewellery consultant.
This morning she has a very special client,
billionaire Lorenzo Di Constanzo who has come to buy a ring.
