 < ITALY WERE ENOTRIA e-travel 

From Archeology in the LANGHE to the Visual Arts in ROME: A PHYDIGITAL JOURNEY TO TASTE THE evolution of Italian Wine ON LINE from the Roman archeological to the tempranillo's up to prephilloxera wines through the navite grapes

DATE: Starting 28/11/2020- Wine Event 09/01/2021 

___THE IDEA___

Even before being a "territory", Italy was recognized as a land for wine ... ENOTRIA it was ...

Exciting !!!! Thinking about Italy did not exist, a series of Indio-European tribes had decided to settle in this peninsula, ... the wine did not exist ... and what was decisive for settling in Italy? the "Vitae" .. meaning  grapevins as life (why this land was ideal for cultivating it !!!)

This was the attraction to start this Journey ... which I hope you want to do with me ...

EXTASYO EXPERIENZA VIAGGIO

It will be a journey into time and into Italy, without the dimension of time or land, but only with the emotion of the perceptions that we will taste in the wines ... after having made our brain travel by searching in the Italian culture the only periods where the map of Italy was a unified peninsula ... the discovery of its DNA as a Republic was ... TO MAKE MY SUITCASES FOR INVITING YOU TO SHARE! ...

...in a unusual way...

Yes, it all started from the Roman Republic ... the tiny region of Enotria ... extraterritorial land of Italy, we would say today, south of Rome, where the Enotri had decided to settle and develop... for this raison.. we unreally want to think the 'Agropontino, just outside Rome, the origin point; ... because we can speak of Italy (unified land) only with the Romans and today, since 1870 with the "taking" of Rome ... Italy as a territory was born under the Romans when it was a Roman republic and returns unified with repubblica Italian ... everything starts from Rome and ends, after the annexation of Rome to the Kingdom of Italy, in Piedmont, before Rome as the capital ... CIRCULAR ... like every journey must be! ... and the link is always the wine !!!!

And I'm not kidding ... it was the Roman emperor Probus who wanted to distinguish the lands under the Roman empire with an ID ... but given the vastness of the empire ... and the multicultural culture ... Eureka ... a visual symbol !! and the cultivation of the vine becomes style ... Made in Italy: "wine" vinum was a business and started from Rome it was spread throughout the known world and became a status symbol: Vinum ...

CALICE LICURGO

SO LET'S WORK TO MAKE REAL, A DIGITAL TRIP, INTO THE TRUE PERCEPTIONS !!!

So we left Rome with the intention of returning to Rome, after having passed from the Roman Empire to the Kingdom of Italy through the Christianization of the Middle Ages which overwrote the consular roads with the pilgrimage routes .. "via Francigena" .. but how very difficult to get excited .. without seeing .. yes for this reason: art must always have existed .. even in our journey !!

PIEDMONTE .. .. so I arrived in Piedmont and immediately in the Langhe, the sign indicating the castle of Grinzane Cavour immediately brought me back to the Kingdom of Italy, to that "Risorgimento" age of which today I am a "daughter" ... better "nephew" ... but not distractions my goal was to taste the Romans ... yes my precise intent was here in the lands of King Nebbiolo ... Barolo and Barbaresco .. and of truffles .. TASTING that unique example of "wine" that the Romans drank .. soon I would have met Simone, the archaeologist who thanks to his research, together with a friend oenologist, has created what he calls "Roman archaeological wine" ... I don't know what to expect .. or rather I'm sure I will taste the wine that the Romans would have liked to have had if they had been able to vinify well instead of covering all those defects ... but deep down they didn't know they were forced to drink what, nowday for us, could have been closest to Balsamic vinegar !!! But could it also have inspired the Vermouth ???? ... wow I'll tell you, indeed I'll show you my experience .......

but to better understand you should see the finds that Simone has reconstructed in his very small wine museum and after having seen the wine tools he had rebuilt on the mosaics found in the Roman domus .. you will understand ..... and only after entering the underground city di Alba means understanding the lifestyle of the Romans, of which wine was already an indication of social status and a drink to celebrate ... then .. following the vineyards among the native vineyards to enter the Italian style of drinking today, in these lands , it means preparing all the senses to perceive the best expressions of these grapes .... that's what I'll do in a week .. but will I have the opportunity to pair wines with white truffles ??? ... it's time for the best white truffle ... anyway .. I always replace it with cocoa .. its intensity does not make us regret anything .. especially because it will be Silvio's .. chef and master chocolatier !!!

... but I promise you I will take up the theme in the other planned trips ... follow us among the aromas of spices .. as Archaeonauts pioneers

TUSCANY ... And if it is time to leave the Langhe land ... continuing is a must ... and wanting to go down to Rome, along the same one that led the pilgrims to San Pietro, we realize that the Roman Empire ends together with the glories of imperialism and we find ourselves in the Middle Ages .. where there is no desire to celebrate oneself .. indeed all involved in finding a new faith to get out of the tunnel ... and so that the desire to understand.. it was what happened also for the wine .. and brings us to the Monks .... already those who discovered the difficult art of fermenting made by time and natural yeasts ... it was the most surprising .... it was for Dom Perignon !!!!!!! But it was already 1600 ... so let's stop in Tuscany .. after all, here the Monks and Nobles immediately tied themselves around the "power" of wine .. just think of the Badie (abbey) .. Passignano on first  ....

But the destination ... also this time will be different ... as unusual as it is singular: Tempranillo Rosso ... the vineyard that, with the pilgrims, arrived from Spain together with Zafferano in Tuscany ... and that Pietro recovered in the his vineyards of San Miniato .... yes, even here, lands of white truffles and Vermouth ..... of which we should postpone the discovery .. but to talk about Medievo, here it will be easy and you could better understand if it is what the Tuscan Monks kept in the dungeons of their cellars, what the Noble Families did between the major and minor arts in the "republic" of the Middle Ages and what was done in the first hospitals, because the first is precisely the Florentine one, the same as Folco Poltinari, father of Dante's lover ... the association of ideas that came to us to explain every change of culture ..

... follow us in the experiences also in streaming

LATIUM  ....And then it's time .... we are returning to Rome !!! Land of .... Romans and Popes ... so obvious that it will not be our focus or rather since Romans have already accompanied us throughout the journey .... here we would like to return to our time .. to our Italian style of drinking and to crystallize the emotions of contemporaneity in art ... so our goal will be to taste the Cacchione Pantastico ... and other vines of Pliny the Elder and without the pretense that thet are the same , even also if prephilloxera vineyards !!!! And if true we are in the ethernal city ... we would prepare for the diVino event .. and it will be surprising after spending time in the Roman Domus, Medieval Abbeys and Castles for our event we would be at the contemporary artist's home !!! Yes, because we would try with Amal to tattoo the emotion of the event .. how ????? With ancient art ... the tribal writing which is: THE PYROGRAPHY !!!
