The Label

This label is a tribute to one of the capital works of Contemporary Art and of the more refined of Malevich’s creativity: the Black Square, “the zero dimension of Contemporary Art”. Symbol of a projection towards the third dimension. Here Malevich’s work is perfectly integrated with the outline of MIRVITA Opificium ArteVino (a figure that to a large extent is found in another painting by Malevich, “Woman with pails”, 1913) and opens a scenario, the synthesis of the project: create a reality in which the perception of the individual may be stimulated jointly by a series of variables: art as a source of primary inspiration, sensory perception stimulated in savoring the result of the company’s production and the identity perception of the winery conveyed via the asymmetrical quadrangle, the stylized representation of the winery itself as well as summa and synthesis of the project MIRVITA Opificium ArteVino. If it were to trace a strong analogy of Kazimir Malevich’s life history, we could compare this label to the legacy left by Malevich himself to the world: Aetas Nova wishes to be the instrument by which to relaunch new paradigms of Art and Science at Vita Nuova and to shout to the world like the Swabian Apulia of Frederick II, Castel del Monte proto-suprematist work and cradle of civilization – proposes those Humanist values of the Middle Ages projecting them into the Cosmic and digital Era of the 21st century.
