Every winery has its roots in the local soil, but Tenimenti Civa in Bellazoia di Povoletto, in the Colli Orientali del Friuli, aims to encourage these roots to spread also into the cultural fabric of its region, Friuli, by dedicating special wines to the leading figures in a history that is often richer and more important than the Friulans themselves imagine.
This is why in 2019 we started the “GRANDI E VINI” Cultural Project, which consists in dedicating each year an event and a special bottle, a great wine taken from the Bellazoia Vineyard, to a protagonist of regional culture.
In 2019 we commemorated Tina Modotti in the ninetieth anniversary of her great photography exhibition in Mexico City, by dedicating the Tinissima wine to her. In 2020, in honour of Pier Paolo Pasolini, from our precious Bellazoia Vineyard we extracted “Oru” to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the foundation of the Academiuta di Lenga Furlana, the school the writer set up to spread the linguistic, cultural and human values he had discovered in Friuli during the war years.
In this 2021 we decided to celebrate the painter Dora Bassi, a protagonist of Italian art of the twentieth century by dedicating the Flôr wine to her, and the presence of Dante Alighieri in the history of Friulan culture. For the 700th anniversary of the death of the Supreme Poet, a Cabernet Sauvignon was chosen, which displays the grace of the oak barrels in which it aged, and which we called Ce fastu? The expression means “What are you doing?”, a well-know phrase of Dante’s.
2021 marks the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s death. For this reason, Tenimenti Civa decided to mark the presence of the Supreme Poet in the history of Friulan culture with a cultural event on 3 December 2021. On the occasion, a video and the bottle “Ce fastu?” will be presented.
Grandi e Vini - Great People and Wines
Pier Paolo Pasolini
In 2020, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the foundation of the Academiuta di Lenga Furlana, the school the writer set up, we made a video on his years in Friuli, entitled “Vin di Oru, in onore di Pier Paolo Pasolini”, and from our precious Bellazoia Vineyard we extracted the wine “Oru”.
In 2019, the first edition of the “Grandi e Vini” cultural project, we commemorated Tina Modotti in the ninetieth anniversary of her great photography exhibition in Mexico City, dedicating the Tinissima wine to her.
