TOPIC: OFFSIDE (To violence, indifference, discrimination and doping)
2nd Biennal "Wine, Humour and Fantasy" - Italy
THEMATIC: WINE IS DIWINE
We always talk about the wine culture, we also add wine in culture. Cinema, painting, literature, art generally have drawn from wine and whereas a two-sided journey that makes get high the wine glass on the seventh art podium, as cinema is considered the seventh art.
Thinking to Mario Soldati, writer and Italian movie director who said that “wine is something that lives and make part of our lives”, we can say that the product wine is the “8th art “.
The first historical reference we find it in the Bible, the patriarch Noé ate fermented grape to celebrate the Deluge.
Another ancient wine reference we have it in Kana’s wedding. According to the legend, a Persian king forgot a grape bunch inside an amphora. After a little time, he saw with surprise that it has fermented and spread some juice. He thought that juice was poison and inform about that his courtesan. But one of them who lost the king’s favour, tried to committ suicide drinking that juice thinking it was poison. Instead the more she drinked it, the more she felt happy and wishful and so she gave them a glass to the king waking in him desire.
The wine alchemy has always been present in magician and sublime aspects of human beeing.
Our most happiest moments are celebrated with this nectar produced by earth and by man’s work.
Celebrations, weddings, birthes, deceases, great banquets, family or religious parties are accompained with wine, nectar from fermented grape that transmits euphoria and happiness.
Wine has been the inspiration source in literary creation in all his genres.
Wine is life and truth, according to the classical motto "in vino veritas", as it’s been told by the French director Jean Luc Godard: “Truth is images in 24 images per second”.
Wine is, like humour "drinking poetry, that has to be tasted, felt, seen and heard…" always present in history and art.
