Party time


One of the best biennale parties was Chris Wilkinson's brunch in the elegant gardens of the Palazzo Soderini. The food was excellent - especially the peach risotto and home-made ice-cream - and the garden was graced by Andrea Rose, director of visual arts at the British Council, Marjorie Allthorpe Guyton, who does the same at Arts Council England, public relations diva Erica Bolton and Charles Jencks (it's that man again). Water sculptor Bill Pye, who had masterminded the stunning display in the Italian Pavilion where Wilkinson Eyre images were reflected on a table of water, admired the 17thcentury fountain that was the focus of the palazzo's garden.
