The Impossible Wine Bottle Machine
If someone invited you to an impossible project, what would you do? You can not say: “No”. Even if your agenda is full with other appointments. Whatever is going around “the impossible” has to be interesting. The answer at this point is obviously, : “Yes, I am coming.” cause, you are going to research on what is happening around the impossible. What about if the project is called: “The Impossible Wine Bottle machine;” This event was part of the “Wine and the city days”;
“Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough, A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse – and Thou Beside me singing in the Wilderness -And Wilderness is Paradise enow.” ― Omar Khayyam
Everyone is investigating about how the wine is produced. Whats is the best thing to do, which are the best products to work with; which are (of course) the main things to be worried about, in order to create the best product out of it; but producing wine, doesn’t depend only on the producer and the products he uses; earth, weather also have their own roll into producing the wine. Now, we know exactly how the Bottle machine produces wine every year. You need, time, patience, will, love, joy etc..;
The long process, takes an average of a year, two or more ( depending on the quality), till the bottle is in the stores, so you can buy and enjoy and taste of the best wine ( for you). You need to choose the right one, that’s for sure. Advisers, sommelier(s), are required; so, once you get to know what’s the right wine for you, you simply buy it, and take it home.
Now here is where we have to start to reflect. Where do you actually buy a bottle of wine? what is important what do you do with it once you get home; have you ever thought about it? A self-reflection, on our attitudes is required: – Where do you conserve it? – How do you open it? – Where do you put it? – What do you put beside, while drinking it? – Where do you drink it? – With whom? – Which way? – When?- Which/what/ when is the right situation?- Why do you drink it?
Can you answer to all those questions, easily? It makes you reflect about your attitude, towards things you probably do normally, without even thinking about them. What if there was a way, where you would discover deeply, why do you drink the wine, in the way you do? This is where the project jumps in;
“The Impossible Wine Bottle Machine”, produced many bottles of wine; but every single bottle was personal. Each person after answering the questions, got its personal profile, and this what made the impossible project – possible; there were no liquids, but every single person, got its bottle with the description of their perosnalities in it. It was a long evening, in a lovely garden, funny and amazing people gathered together, talking to each other, wine from “Grotta Del Sole” was served, and a time of self-reflection was waiting in the bottles to be opened once we got back home.
The project was realized for the Wine and the city days by 137 A: Carla Celestino, Valter Luca De Bartolomeis, Marialuisa Firpo, Carla Giusti, Gabriella Grizzuti, Totto Rennna and Ivan Turturiello;
