Through Suprematism Malevich places the supremacy of pure artistic sensibility
in the center of his research. The exteriority of the geometric forms becomes a metaphor and instrument for a reality that does not end at a superﬁcial observation, but penetrates space and the point where it is located, driving and stimulating the observer to penetrate the static reality of things by observing the beauty of their forms, contemplating the interplay of interweaving among them. The object, the form, is dismembered from the mere acceptance of self, becoming the bastion of a personal all-round vision of a reality which is seen and lived.
Visiting the winery, listening to the dreams, projects and foundations therein, means becoming aware of the wealth of one’s own land, often forgotten, that re-emerge, with new life, becoming a focus
of interest and fascination.
It is to discover the Sanctuary dedicated to wine barrels, immersed in lights that penetrate the tufaceous arches, and a music that reconciles one with a peace found therein. The many kinds of wood that harbor gold and among myricae that recount a tale, the century-old one of our world of wine.
Wine expresses not only the vines of its ancestors but the traits of the hills where they are bred, the nature of the soil, the temperament of the seasons, the art of the wine growers, the restful cellars where it matures.
To know Mirvita means to feel with the senses and with the touch the roots of the soil. Strictly speaking. Three large ﬁnestre frame six meters of open ground in which the clay, sandy and limestone stratiﬁcazioni follow each other and alternate creating
a natural picture. What we can not see but that makes us righteous and ﬁeri on the road of our lives.
The modernization of our wine culture is due to Giulio Bucci, innovative agrarian reformer and a protagonist in Italy’s post-uniﬁcation period.
He built the ﬁrst monumental winery in post-Risorgimento Italy in Minervino Murge.
He exported his wines to the Bordeaux region of France, and received numerous gold medals at the Universal Exhibition in Turin in 1884.
It is in this context of ancient winemaking traditions that the Tor de falchi winery was born, founded in 1990 by Donato di Gaetano, creator of the Mirvita Opiﬁcium ArteVino trademark.
To know Mirvita is to dance at once between past, present and future. On a breezy and magnanimous hill, rises the spirit of the winery, a blend of passion for wine and for contemporary art.
The wine cellar is summation and image of an lofty project, which blends culture, encounters, love of wine and the projection of oneself. In its form and idea Mirvita was inspired by Kazimir Malevich, the avant-garde Russian painter, pioneer of contemporary art and founder of Suprematism.
