One of the biggest “hits” this year at Ceci’s Vinitaly stand was Parma artist Patrizio Dall’Argine who was on hand to paint Ceci’s new line of “To You Paint” Lambrusco.
To the delight of tasters and visitors to our stand, the beloved theatrical designer and puppeteer decorated scores and scores of bottles with his signature painting style.
Today, Patrizio is known primarily for his innovative work in puppeteering, which draws from the rich tradition of the Italian burattino.
But he’s also worked extensively in theater, including set designs for some of Europe’s most important stages.
Check out his website, “the Hypnotic Medical Theater,” here. The site is written in Italian but you can see wonderful images from some of his more recent projects.
And follow Patrizio on Facebook here, where you can also browse photos of his paintings.
He’s also the author of a landmark Manual for Puppeteers.
