Consortium for the Protection of Prosecco DOC showcases Italian genius through short films

In line with its mission to enhance the cultural and artistic reputation of Italian heritage, the Consortium for the Protection of Prosecco DOC has produced two short films that showcase the Italian genius that permeates the territory, origins and production of Prosecco DOC.

The first film, Lightness That Inspires, embraces a journey of love between two young people through an intoxicating and vibrant toast. From the sinuous profiles of Antonio Canova’s sculptures at the Gypsotheca in Possagno to the Miramare Castle in Trieste, the film is a eulogy to the country’s excellence met in the elegance of Prosecco DOC.

This year, the Consortium marks the bicentennial of Antonio Canova’s death with Genius Moves the World, a film that transports viewers back to the second half of the 18th century to discover where the master sculptor moved, imagined, contemplated and shaped matter into masterpieces. Per the film, his grace reveals the beauty of emotion found in tasting a glass of Italian Prosecco bubbles; a journey between illusion and creation, where the hand that carves the marble is the same that works the vineyard.
