Architect Edoardo Milesi - studio ARCHOS designed the Castello Banfi stand at Vinitaly, an important international event for the world of wine held once a year in Verona.
The stand is a temporary construction in which visitors are immersed in a multisensorial experience evocatively representing the history, study and places that go into production of quality wine. The volume of the stand is on two levels, with an entrance and kitchen on the ground floor opposite the storage space and the stairs to the upper level. The top level is divided into little spaces for tasting different wines. In structural terms, the stand is formed of two blocks of burnt chestnut wood joined by two lattice girders. The long sides are closed off by semi-transparent membranes on which images evoking Tuscany are projected: hills, trees blowing in the wind, etc. The materials used to build the stand recall materials used in winemaking. The technique used to obtain the dark colour of the walls is like that used on barriques, while untreated natural larch wood recalls the crates used to ship wine to distant lands.
