Nuove Cantine Italiane / New Italian Wineries

€ 28,00

This book provides an overview of ten architectural projects for wineries and a distillery constructed in Italy by eleven architectural offices.

Numerous accompanying photographs clearly illustrate the bond forged by the wineries with the environment and the architects’ ability to decipher the local characteristics – seen as the cultural, environmental, geological and morphological mix exemplifying the production site – and reflect them in the design. In several countries including Italy, wineries become hospitality spots, helping to boost the familiarity with and popularity of their local area.

The book, which accompanies an itinerant exhibition, features the most interesting design outcomes of the last decade and illustrates the ongoing phenomenon of wineries designed by architects from diverse professional backgrounds, one that offers potential for major expansion in some regions.
It confirms Electa’s focus on an architectural design that is sensitive to the entire wine production cycle and its generating area, combined with a desire to employ architecture as a means to characterise, distinguish and intrigue. Books previously published by Electa: Cantine secolo XXI. Architetture e paesaggi del vino (2011) and Architettura e vino. Nuove cantine e gusto del vino (2007). Both edited by Francesca Chiorino, these titles have accompanied the evolution of this specific sphere of architectural research and design over time.

Bilingual Italian/English. English translation by Richard Sadleir.
