They portray the territory in Southern Tuscany where special wines like Brunello and Orcia are made. Hills where man and natures work have created a perfect harmony which has miraculously been preserved through time. A territory which has been photographed millions of times and so, it really is difficult to catch a special shot as everything is a déjà vu and it is very easy to be rhetoric.
The Casato Prime Donne award, has now reached its 15th edition. It emphasizes the best journalistic and photographic contributions regarding the wine territories south of Siena, and every year it chooses a “Prima Donna”. An emblematic personality, from the world of women, who has given meaningful help or who has been of example to other women. In the past we have had winners such as the stylist Carla Fendi, the astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, the scientist Ilaria Capua and the courageous mayor from Locride Maria Carmela Lanzetta.
Those visiting Casato Prime Donne find a trace of these extraordinary women , as they have left a quotation next to the works of art by young artists.
In the hall dedicated to Ilda Bartoloni, the journalist to whom we owe the present format of the award, we exhibit the winning photographs of the past 15 editions. A spectacular panorama of the Brunello and Orcia territories seen by the greatest landscape and travel photographers. We’ll be waiting for you !
