Ambasada Gavioli - the cathedral of luxurious colours
Ambasada Gavioli is a nightclub located in Izola, Slovenia and named after its architect Gianni Gavioli. It has a floor space of 1,600 m2 and a capacity of 2,500 guests.
The project is inspired from literature, theatre, cinema and fashion. Some themes include Italian baroque with Juliet's balcony and the Baudelaire's Evil Flowers. The architecture of the club is divided in two floors: wider main room and smaller, more intimate privee', which are connected with a glass wall, which allow visual and programming contact of rooms. The Ambasada Gavioli uses different materials like wood, white stone and copper, combined in a Mediterranean style.
Since 1995 when it opened, Ambasada Gavioli has become the focal point of the Electronic music community in Slovenia, Northern Italy, Southern Austria and North-West Croatia, achieving almost a cult following appeal in the scene. In the cultural context, many people see the venue and the movement it created as a display of new cultural strength of the independent Slovenia. The club was also intensely famed by the media due to its edgy provocative image, which has been carefully maintained by its Public Relations department, further reinforcing its futuristic cult-like appeal.
