This year, no man’s land celebrated her 25th birthday, which is something we could only have dreamt of when our brand was born. We had three unforgettable days in Veneto with our famiglia.
We kept the location a secret until the very last moment...
By boat we were brought in small groups to the hotel Belmond Cipriani Venezia. Walking from the boat to the Aperitivo we were welcomed with prosecco by waiters dressed in white suits. We were very lucky with the sunny weather and enjoyed the magical sunset with a view on the San Marco. We could not have hoped for a better start of the evening.
After the magical sunset the doors were opened to a large and enchanting dining room.
Every table was styled in perfection. Beautiful orange flowers and a menucard with 5 courses. After the ‘anti pasto’ a few of our dear famiglia members gave speeches. These made us rise up from our chairs and give a standing ovation to the creators of no man’s land: Anet Ooijman and Salvatore Cascone. This was a clear showing of our rich history together and the loyal friendship we have created over the past 25 years.
We danced together like there was no tomorrow.
Everyone was just in a glory of happiness and enjoying dancing together. The music took us back into the 80’s where our famiglia first met. After midnight it was time turn back to Mirano but no one wanted to go home! They turned the lights on and we just continued to dance!

Who remembers when it all began - out here in no man's land. Before they passed the master plan - out here in no man's land. Low supply and high demand - here in no man's land.
