Grand opening party at "Il Bel Paese", Italian Deli in Happy Valley

Il "Bel Paese", a new Dining Vision repositioning project in Hong Kong, reopened its Deli Shops locations in Happy Valley, Caine Road and Bonham Road, after being closed for about 10 days for a complete interior remodeling and new F&B concept development.
This popular brand, existing since 2001, has a loyal customers base that will find out the changes focus on providing a better quality and shopping experience, while introducing to a new generation more organic and eco-friendly choices.

The deli shops are a lot fresher, with a brighter, more inviting and approachable retail area, ice cream corner and a huge vertical cheese and cold cuts fridge right at the entrance. We wanted to re-look at an Italian grocery store concept, not formal and intimidating but rather engaging and conversational.
The refresh of the deli shops in Happy Valley, Bonham Road and Caine Road was led by Dining Vision, a Hong Kong based F&B Consulting Company with ongoing projects in Vietnam and Thailand as well.

During a recent visit to family and friends in Italy, I had the pleasure to meet in Rome Dr. Carolina Amelio, Founder of CaroAnto Amelio, a non-profit organization born in 2014 to assist and support families of children with disabilities. So far Dr. Amelio’s work focused on these three main goals:


  1. Emotional empowerment of disabled children and teenagers
  2. Parents’ support aimed at addressing their commitment in helping their children to achieve autonomy and to strengthen their capacity regardless of limitations
  3. Support for siblings and their future lives.

Moving forward, the non-profit organization’s focus is to build a multi-function center:

  • The CaroAnto Center: a rehabilitation center with traditional and cutting edge therapies able to address the emotional aspects of the person rather than only on the aspects of the disability
  • The CaroAnto Residence: a living space for adults with sensory disabilities (blind, deaf or deaf and blind people) able to conduct an independent life. They will have the option to rent a room in single or double accommodations with a friend or a life companion; the goal is to lay the foundations for a future in full autonomy and having the security of a protected environment
  • The CaroAnto Shop: a retail area dedicated to workshops and sale of objects handcrafted by the residents and to be sold to the public as a reward of their work

A small fee can help to make a dream come true!
