This month, the Zenato winery hosted a group of German photography students from the celebrated f/16 Schule für Fotografie (f/16 School for Photography) in Berlin.
The young artists were selected especially by renowned Italian art critic Luca Panaro, professor at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, Italy. They spent a week in the vineyards and at the winery, capturing images and impressions of the winemaking process. Zenato brought them down from Germany during harvest so they could photograph the vineyards during the most “photogenic” time of year. The images will be displayed in spring of 2020 in Milan and they will be collected and published in a catalog of the exhibition following the show.
This new project and partnership is the second “installment” of the newly founded Zenato Academy.
Last year, Professor Panaro tapped students from the Brera Academy for a similar project.
The Zenato Academy is just one of the ways that the Zenato family supports the arts and other culturally meaningful projects.
