Bacchus, covered in grapes and a leopard skin, stands over three men drinking wine.
Historical Context:
The Museo del Vino Torgiano utilizes its collection to display the mysterious charm of the Dionysian myth and the complex system of symbols and meanings that wine plays in the course of the centuries as a narrative thread that guides visitors through their impressive collections. To reveal the many faces of wine, the museum displays a variety of exhibitions of archaeological finds, artifacts of ethnographic art, and kits for growing grapes and making wine. The Museo del Vino Torgiano is the brainchild of Giorgio Lungarotti and edited by his wife Maria Grazia Marchetti, located in the seventeenth century Palazzo Graziani Baglioni, in the center of Torgiano.
