For many, the pull of Italy lies in its traditions. The concept of Made in Italy is more than just a quality marker: it’s a window into the lives of those who breathe their country’s customs every day.

Known in the art world for her medium-defying methods, she has reinvented her career in recent years, foregoing more traditional media and choosing to paint with wine. The “wine artist” sat down with The Florentine to discuss her work, inspiration and the apex of a commission she received for one very special occasion.
