Mille e una notte

Dialogue with art

The palace shown on the label is the one where Queen Maria Carolina took refuge fleeing from Naples and was the favorite house of the writer Tomasi di Lampedusa in Santa Margherita Belice. Gabriella Anca Rallo –founder of Donnafugata, with her husband Giacomo- captures the image and embeds it into the sky from “Arabian Nights”, full of stars and full of promise. The strong and passionate character of this wine has inspired maître chocolatier Ernst Knam in his creation of the “Mille e una Notte with chili” pralines.

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.
