Dialogue with art

From the Arabic term “Son of the Wind” because the wind sweeps constantly around the grape clusters on Pantelleria. And the island’s winds bring with them a profusion of fragrances so powerful that you can touch them. An author label telling the love, the care and the effort of heroic viticulture on an island unique and fascinating. A fresh and enchanting portrait that reveals its essence.

Stefano Vitale, the author

Stefano Vitale is an internationally renowned artist and illustrator. Born in Padova, Italy in 1958. He studied economics at the University of Southern California and traveled extensively through Central America, coming into contact with the local folk art that deeply influenced him. After completing his studies in economics he obtained a degree in Fine Arts at The Arts Center in Pasadena, and then moved to New York where he worked for about 15 years. He currently lives in Italy. He is well known for having illustrated several prestigious magazines and literary works (e.g. the cover of the novel “L’Alchimista” (The Alchemist) by Paulo Coehlo). For Donnafugata he has designed almost all the labels: an exceptional artist with a unique stroke, capable of making the personality of each wine shine.
