Medici family, for the construction of one of their most important villas, “La Ferdinanda”. The group exhibition will take place inside the Barrels Room, creating a direct line between the environment dedicated to the aging of wine.
THEME: THE SENSES OF WINE
The taste and the scent of wine can be represented through photography? You can photograph the feelings related to his tasting? And the feelings come from it? What are the senses (in terms of perception) of the wine? And what is, more generally, the meaning of wine? The grapes and the vineyards, the harvest, the moment of the tasting and all social occasions related to its production and to its consumption are just some of the dimensions that can figure out, through images, “the senses some wine”. Candidate photographers are called to investigate these dimensions, remembering Salvador Dali words: “True connoisseurs do not drink wine: they taste secrets “.
