Ricami diVini 2015: embroideries and wines in the hills of Monferrato, Italy

Ricami Divini Rosignano MonferratoOn the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of May 2015, the town of Rosignano Monferrato in Piedmont, Italy, will host an interesting exhibition of needlework: Ricami diVini. Protagonists of the event will be, of course, the embroideries, but also the internationally renowned wines produced in these valleys, including Barbera, Grignolino, Cortese and Freisa.
The Monferrato hills, together with Langhe and Roero, have recently been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, for their typical tuff cellars (infernot) and vineyards. In this wonderful location, Ricami diVini will feature the works of famous Italian and French needlework designers.
