Costa Cruises’ new ship, Costa Favolosa, a 114,500-ton, 3,800-passenger beauty is to be named by another Italian beauty in a ceremony in Trieste on July 2.

Actress Margareth Madé, who stared in the internationally acclaimed Italian film Baaria was chosen for her beauty, refinement and strong personality, according to the cruise line.

“It could only have been this fabulous actress, who rose by right to the international elite of Italian icons, to become the muse of our flagship and Costa’s unmistakable world-renowned style,” said Pier Luigi Foschi, chairman and CEO of Costa Cruises.

The ceremony will be a “Tribute to Beauty”, which will include performances by the famous pianist Ludovico Einaudi and the Ballet School of the “Academia Teatro Alla Scala”.

Italian journalist Cristina Parodi will act as Master of Ceremonies for the event, which will conclude with a fireworks display over the water.
