Partying at Le Sirenuse

There are those who say Le Sirenuse, on Italy’s Amalfi Coast, is the chicest hotel in the world—no small thanks to Carla and Antonio Sersale, whose family has run the place for 60 years. In October, Antonio celebrated his 50th and Carla did what any la-dolce-vita-loving wife would do: She threw a party. The dress was festive with a tinge of Orient—and so it was, on everyone from Carla

and Antonio

to their two sons, Aldo and Francesco

, and the rest of the cast of 300 family, friends, and regulars at the hotel, which opens its doors once again on April 1.
