During the event, Sandra Maria Dami and Ilaria Franchini, respectively an author and a photographer of DonneDentro, bring their writing and photography to OCRA, illustrating the stages of the work they carried out, which involved emotional encounters, passion for words and the essence of photography, and how their idea was accepted at ArtApp, which led to a joyful encounter and an opportunity, which in turn led to the publication of a book.

About | Ilaria Franchini
Ilaria Franchini was born in Florence, where she graduated from an art school.
She expresses her passion for pictorial portraits thorough photography, and her portraits have always been closely linked to the intimate context of the person portrayed and the surrounding environment: photographs that tell a story about an identity…
Many of her projects are about the world of women.
The opening tasting is offered by the farm Col di Lamo. Its owner, Giovanna Neri, inherited her passion for wine from her father, and today, she is an established and sought-after wine producer. What makes Col di Lamo wines special is Giovanna’s ability to give her products a particular kind of love that only a woman, a mother, can feel for her child.
This is how she considers her “creatures”, Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino, Lamo and the Acquavite, to the making of which she has devoted her life, while determining and guiding each phase of the production process. Exactly as her father taught her.
The Col di Lamo wine label has been creatively designed with the aim of giving it a feminine touch: the logo represents the delicate profile of a woman’s face, while the orange and green of Lamo represent the image that Giovanna wanted to give to her company and her products.
