    Over 100 years.

  • Philosophy

    Concepts for wines expression.

    Since 1903 my family has been exporting its own finest Estate wines from Tuscany. We have changed and evolved over the decades, but throughout the years the philosophy of our work has remained consistent: "The quality of the wine begins in the vineyard", as my ancestors used to say...

Letters to Extra Pontem

It is certainly not something new the special focus on culture by the company. So the decision to sponsor the event-show "Lettere a Extra Pontem" tied to the concept of territorial identity. We offered a tasting of our "Santa Lucia Toscano", an organic wine that particularly stands out thanks to an innovative and "sustainable" packaging. Itself product with a strong bond with the territory.

"Lettere a Extra Pontem" is a choral performance of the district "fuori del ponte" aimed to combine the realities present in the city's social environment (October 10 to 12 2014 at Pontedera Teatro Era). A final act of the project called "Extra Pontem", which began in October 2013 through workshops for students and young people, through interviews, concerts, lectures and meetings with groups and associations, to build a network of new relationships between the theater and the district where it is located, to bring out stories that enhance relationships and accentuate the sense of belonging and identity. Integral part of the project is the photographic work of Simone Rocchi titled "Faces of a neighborhood" exhibited in the courtyard of the Teatro Era.

 

Project of Comune di Pontedera, created and produced by Fondazione Pontedera Teatro with the contribution of Regione Toscana. Artistic direction of Anna Stigsgaard.
