An Outsider in Montalcino.
This short film, shot to celebrate the twentieth vintage of Luce, traces the history of the wine, as seen through the eyes of a very unusual figure, one who is determined to uncover every last secret of this wine, even as far as physically touching “The twentieth moment of this unique wine,” which is precisely the film’s subtitle.
Shot entirely in Montalcino, the denomination where Luce’s roots grow deep, the film received its official preview in Milan last 19 March, before an exclusive international public of journalists and VIP guests, within the striking walls of the ex-Church of San Carpoforo, which now houses the Accademia di Brera, which hosted the event.
Four Seasons Milan: Luce Tasting

Fiori di Luce. Vino, Terra, Foglia
Following the official presentation in Murano, Fiori di Luce: Vino, Terra, Foglia is now on display at the Spazio Venini in Milan.
This trio of vases is Venini’s interpretation of Luce.
The original “Calla” vase by Tyra Lundgren, first presented at the Venice Biennale in 1948, is brought to life again in a trio of vases that represent some of the characteristics of Luce. Its color is reproduced by the red made in the Opaline technique. The use of gold leaf creates an effect that resembles the soil of vineyards, and finally the Phoenician technique evokes the texture of grape leaves.
It is a work inspired by light, exclusively for Luce.
Luce della Vite is a guest, for the second year, of the Venini store for the third edition of Vendemmia della Via Montenapoleone, Harvest of Via Montenapoleone.

Luce Lights Up Verona Once Again
Far from the noise of the crowd, Luce returns again this year to fill your glasses at an intimate gathering among friends. And for two very good reasons: to introduce the 2009 vintage and to discover the newest creation of Casa di Luce.
Geni di Luce
The earth, when it appears as galestro soil, becomes the cradle of Sangiovese, if it is richer in clay, it bears Merlot. Twin earths so rich in history, in life, in character, that they inspired a third, the noble clay of Richard Ginori 1735, in the creation of Geni di Luce, an art-piece that conveys the story of a super tuscan wine and its twin earths through the noble magic of Italian porcelain.
Luce and The Decanter Designed by Carlo Moretti
Luce 2006 and the decanter Soffio di Luce, designed by Carlo Moretti of Murano were presented together at the Venetian restaurant Da Fiore, on September 18th. Present were Tiziana Frescobaldi, Giovanni Moretti, and several journalists.
Luce is a unique wine created with the greatest attention to detail. The choice to work with world renown Carlo Moretti glass studio was almost automatic, given their shared philosophy: create one of a kind works of art.
Illuminating With Light (Luce) on an Evening in May
The exclusive venue of the Acquario Romano was the setting for the festive debut of Luce 2006. The gala evening, which drew celebrities from the worlds of fine food and wine, and of high culture and entertainment, was also as the festive finale to the “Momenti di Luce” photographic competition, which featured artists who were asked to interpret various moments and themes pertaining to the birth and life of Luce. From November 2008 through March 2009, photographers Giorgio Bertoncello, Salvatore Fazio, Enzo Massa, Giorgio Cecca, Alberto Placidoli, and Angela Maria Antuono entered into the life of Luce, focusing their inspiration on its places, people, harvest, and the cycle of the seasons, baring witness through their art to the earth, the cellars, and the people whose lives are bound up with this Tuscan wine. During an event dedicated to the presentation of Luce 2006, Leonardo Frescobaldi, together with the professional jury, awarded Salvatore Fazio as the photographer who best captured the spirit of Luce.
Group C14 – Fusion of Light (Off-Programme, Salone)
During Milan’s week-long salon for the world of design and art, Velasco Vitali, in collaboration with Luce and Entis, presented his personal study of the process of interaction light-form-material in search of the gradations of darkness and the secrets of shade, through experimental illumination of three of his sculptures.
Functionally installed in a converted ex-industrial area, Velasco’s three works suggest physical equilibrium and precarious form, and, although they share the same fused shape, each differs in surface, in colour, and in the “tension” inherent in the material itself.
The labour of research and experimentation begins with the assimilation of this delicate balance and, by means of studying artificial light in a custom-designed environment, it transforms itself into an examination of the particular characteristics of shade and shadow in which the spirit of the material world expresses itself in surprising and unexpected aspects.
