Chianti sings: voices and tales from the earth of wine
Drama and music shows. Sunday 14 July – 6pm Badia a Coltibuono

by Elena Paglicci
with Elena Paglicci (actress), Elena Mariani (vocalist), Chiara Lucchesi (piano)
based on the book Se la vita è solo il nome che porti, by Donatella Tognaccini,
Press & Archeos, 2016
Through cabaret and drama we celebrate wine in its ritual and convivial dimension. Following Donatella Tognaccini’s book we will trace the source of the words “wine” and “Chianti”, and will go over its history, from ancient times to the Middle Ages, through myths and stories inspired by historical events, such as Montaperti battle. We will try to imagine some people who really lived here in the Middle Ages and only left their evocative fascinating names as the sole trace of themselves.
