TUSCANY (ITALY): THE AMAZING EMPORIUM WHERE WE MAY REDISCOVER THE SENSE OF THINGS AND TIME…

She is called Marcellina. And for the territories of Mount Amiata, in Tuscany, Siena Country,  she is a very important person. A sort of symbol. An institution. What Marcellina is doing? She runs a shop – Pinzi Pinzuti – along Via Cavour, in Abbadia San Salvatore, a picturesque medieval town. But it’s not correct saying “shop”. It’s a real emporium of creativity and imagination, where everything can be found, where an incredibile number of things are exposed in a cheerfully confusion, but everything at your fingertips, in a clever logic that only Marcellina knows.

Marcellina Pinzi Pinzuti is the great animator of this fascinating place, where you can travel back in time, looking for an old object, an ornament, a tin toy, an old book, a cloth, a teapot , ceramic plates, outfits, liquers, textiles, calendars, food locally produced, as the wines of the Organic Farm Pinzi Pinzuti and as the prestigious Volcano Amiata Wine bottled with the artistic label created by Mitrani Yarden and me.

Yes, it’s a magical cave, open till late, and whose lights are shed on the outside, like to recall the hasty passers. It’s impossible not to be enchanted by this place, where time seems to stand still, together with Marcellina, who welcomes you with ease, knowing how suggest you in purchases, with great discretion and kindness.

So, welcome to an unbelievable world that we thought no longer existed, because gone with the advent of technology. Here, at Marcellina shop, we can retrieve the value of the magical things. And it’s really great in these times which are running very fast and seem to drag all away, pushing us to lose the sense of the objects, the flavor of the memory.

After the great success in Nottingham, on last March, the Italian-British project “The Ghost Bus” is coming to Italy .On October 24-25,  2015 ,  the “Italian premiere” of the short film I made with Bartons PLC and Act Group will take place in the wonderful Tuscany, on Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena. Italian people will have the opportunity to see and to check how an old and rusty bus  from Fifties can give some ideas to explore and renew visual arts … 

English people have greeted the initiative with great interest and with an wide media coverage. For the  Italian premiere of “The Ghost Bus”  is expected from the UK the arrival of a group of visitors who will tour  the main centers of Tuscany, from Florence to Siena,  makin’ a stop on the enchanting Monte Amiata to participate to the events promoted for the presentation of the short film in collaboration with Piancastagnaio Major and Municipality and Osa Onlus… Because “the road never ends…”
