Bortolomiol launches photography exhibition

Bortolomiol’s photography exhibition, Verso l’UNESCO, features the work of Arcangelo Piai and his depictions of the Prosecco Superiore Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG.

The exhibition opened on 28 May at the Parco della Filandetta as part of Cantine Aperte, a nationwide wine tourism event in which Italian wineries open their doors to the public and put on special events. The name is a reference to Conegliano Valdobbiadene’s UNESCO bid, submitted to the governing body in January of this year following a nine-year project.

Arcangelo Piai was born in Conegliano in 1965 and his pictures have been published in magazines including Bell’Italia, Marco Polo, Panorama Travel, Weekend Trips and Conde Nast Traveller. In 2017, he became the spokesman for CNA Treviso photographers.

Commenting on the show, Elvira Bortolomiol, vice president of Bortolomiol, said: ‘We wanted to collect these beautiful shots of our hills.”

“Landscapes are wonderful and these photos tell you about the heroic viticulture. The slopes of the hills enclose the passion of men who have believed in this area since the period after the war, as my father, the founder of the winery and pioneer of Prosecco, had already seen the potential before its global success.”

“Today, UNESCO’s heritage nomination is a guarantee of quality for the appellation’s values in which Bortolomiol is fully reflected”.

Verso l’UNESCO will run until autumn and is open Monday to Friday from 2pm to 6pm and on Saturdays from 9:30am to 12:30pm.
