Head to Chianti this summer and you can enjoy art, along with your wine.
A new initiative is set to take place in the Chianti region of Italy, will transport art lovers through vineyards and Tuscan landscapes, to soak up the sculptures of French artist, Nathalie Decoster. Celebrating spirituality, freedom, human rights and the environment, sculptures and artwork will be set out on a trail for guests to soak up and enjoy.
A proud beacon of spiritual values since the Renaissance, the sleepy village of Panzano has retained a connection with nature and the universe and is the perfect location to celebrate an artist who explores serenity and modern humanism in her works.
From 22 June – 18 September 2019, this open-air exhibition will unveil ethnological sculptures by Decoster, across four vineyards, which will be open to visitors during the event; Her works will also be shown in public spaces of the village of Panzano. This also coincides with Organic Wine Festival which takes place on 12 – 15 September, and is a reminder of our connection with nature.
The project is the brainchild of local art lover, TV personality and businessman Dario Cecchini, who is pioneering the village of Panzano as a destination.
Along with its organic vineyards and sustainable agriculture, there is plenty to bring international tourists to appreciate art in the stunning surroundings.
A curated catalogue of things to do and see - exhibitions, events, films and galleries.
