Bandini donation – Historical books for the community of Castellina

By | Eventi | No Comments



Amelia Bandini donated in 2010 an extremely interesting group of historical books – dating from XVI to XIX century- to the community of Castellina in Chianti.

In doing so she fulfilled the wishes of her sister Delia (1920-2009), who was particularly interested in local heritage and history throughout her entire life, which they both  spent for the most in the village of Castellina, growing very close to the community.

The inauguration is scheduled for September 8th at 5 p.m. and the exhibition will last until November 4th.








Massimo Vinattieri. Ancient myths and contemporary abstractions

By | Eventi | No Comments



This personal exhibition is for the artist Massimo Vinattieri   a dream come true, for the possibility of  displaying  in an evocative location  his artwork,  which has stemmed from a spiritual confrontation among the etruscan Myth and contemporary art language and milieu.

Born in San Mauro a Signa (FI) in 1956, Massimo Vinattieri  has been living in the ancient hamlet of Artimino for over thirty years.  This tiny village, best known for a Medicean villa, shares with Castellina in Chianti a long history dating back to the time of the ancient Etruscan people. A fil rouge of history and  art which now has been finding  new powerful inspiration in the territory and archaeological heritage of Castellina.

Massimo Vinattieri’s artwork is most often present in Italy and abroad: it was part of the 54th International Art Exhibition of Biennale di Venezia in 2011 and again the same year in Torino in the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Italy Unification by recommendation of  the President of the Italian Republic.
