Breve storia che ogni bambino può leggere a un vignaiolo indipendente e viceversa
Abbecedario per vignaioli e aspiranti tali
Baby Fivi is a beautiful, ruby baby who at the moment of his birth manifests an unusual sound: "Pop," explains the nurse, making that sound with his lips. To describe what is undoubtedly the sound of a bottle cap popping. From that day and for all the years to come, Fivi will show that he knows from his first womb what his destiny will be: to become an independent winemaker! Thus, much to the dismay of his parents, his first construction with cubes will be a bunch of grapes, and some of his first words will be magnum and flûte…
With text by Davide Longo and illustrations by Guido Scarabottolo, Breve storia che ogni bambino può leggere a un vignaiolo indipendente e viceversa (Short story that any child can read to an independent vintner and vice versa) tells what inspires those who want to become vintners, and guides us to discover this age-old craft through a symbolic primer for vintners or would-be vintners.
With irony, inventiveness and inspiration, Longo and Scarabottolo manage to communicate to the reader not only the love of wine, but also the love of preserving, protecting and promoting the territory to which the winemaker belongs.
The book is edited by FIVI, Federazione Italiana Vignaioli Indipendenti.
