Tenuta Castelbuono, Bevagna (PG)


Tenuta Castelbuono, Bevagna (PG)


Tenuta Castelbuono is an estate with 30 hectares of vineyards in the communes of Bevagna and Montefalco. The Lunelli family purchased Tenuta Castelbuono in 2001 and their efforts were initially concentrated on the vineyards, which have now been converted to organic methods.
The “Carapace” building is the result of the Lunelli family’s dream of having a winery that is also a treasure chest for wine. From the Lunellis’ long-standing friendship with Arnaldo Pomodoro and their previous collaboration sprang the idea of suggesting that he – whose sculptures adorn important sites all over the world – should design the winery. Pomodoro enthusiastically accepted the challenge of creating a work that called into question the dividing lines between sculpture and architecture and which forged a dialogue both with the outside – the landscape in which it would be inserted – and with what would be inside: with the wine for whose production it had to be strictly functional.
“My work, therefore, didn’t have to contrast with the gentleness of the hills on which the vineyards lie; indeed, it had to perfectly integrate with the environment. I had the idea of a shape that was reminiscent of a tortoise, a symbol of stability and longevity which, with its shell, represents the union between the land and the sky” (Arnaldo Pomodoro).
The result is an absolutely unique work of art: the first sculpture in the world in which it is possible to live and work; a place in which art and nature, sculpture and wine intermingle, thus highlighting the exceptional nature both of the container and its contents.
