A new Birth
Presenting the first monographic issue of Frames of Luce
The arrival of spring marks the start of a new project. Like every work in which one puts dedication, it is the peak of a long process. We present Birth, the first monographic issue of Frames of Luce. A volume dedicated to birth as seen from every point of view, whether it’s closer to us – the birth of a wine, of a vineyard – or whether it refers to topics that are distant but somehow connected with wine – and life – thanks to a thin yet strong thread.
So that you can enjoy a little sample, here’s the editorial by Michele Drusian, Marketing Director at Luce della Vite. You can read the rest by following this link.
Birth is a moment that fits very well with the latest projects of Tenuta Luce.
During the last year, Lux Vitis was born and, before that, the cellar and this project too.
So when choosing a topic for the first thematic issue of Frames of Luce, the concept of birth threaded its way with the strength of a new-born shoot. And we decided to explore birth in different and only seemingly distant fields.
We started from the vineyard, where what happens is a matter of birth and rebirth, in a constant interaction and dialogue with the surrounding environment, as explained by Stefano Ruini in his interview. A natural cycle that has a profound connection with man’s work, competences, intuitions and team-spirit, as Lamberto Frescobaldi tells us in another article. And looking at the sky above the vineyards, astrophysics explains that even in the case of stars, birth is a process that happens all the time across the universe.
A journey that changes following the path of life “above the genetic code” or draws from memories evoking scents and revolutionising flavours, as in the case of the five iconic dishes by Massimo Bottura that we present here. The evolution of birth sometimes remains hidden and takes place deep below, as per a diamond, sometimes it brings new experiences into the light or implies rituals. In some cases, instead, birth is a point of view: that of a photographer who portrays urban life. Or it’s a matter of looking back and retracing an ancient history, like that of wine.
In each of the worlds we explored, we wanted to find and depict the moment that brings them together: birth. And rebirth.
