Lighea

Dialogue with art

“From the disheveled tresses the color of the sun, seawater flowed over the green, wide-open eyes.” Thus Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa describes Lighea, the bewitching siren and principal figure in his novel. She has inspired the creation of a complex and innovative wine and an equally original label. “It was not easy to print this label”, Gabriella (founder of Donnafugata, with her husband Giacomo) recalled, “and preserve the thousand shadings of colors of Pantelleria Island, painted in the original drawing.”

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.
