June 2nd is the Festa della Repubblica in Italy, a national holiday to celebrate the birth of the repubblic. I was invited to do a Live Painting by Brumalia, an Umbrian cultural association that is specialized in experiential tourism & events such as traditional Umbrian cooking classes, winery tours and so much more.
Tenuta Vitalonga is a winery owned by the Maravalle family located in Ficulle just north of Orvieto in Umbria. It’s a boutique winery set in a natural landscape of extraordinary beauty, where the western border of Umbria meets Tuscany.
That afternoon they put together a sweet lunch paired with their exquisite wines. I painted their dessert event and jazz entertainment which included a tasting of their dessert wines. It was an easy going commemorative event with friends and family enjoying a lovely day in an Italian countryside location. I captured the happiness and mood of the day!
