The Canali-Femfert Family
Stefania, a historian, was born in Venice, studied in Florence, and then taught at Columbus University in the United States. Peter, an art gallerist in Frankfurt, has always had a great love for Italy. Before dedicating himself to Nittardi he travelled the world on foot, with an adventurous journey across the Sahara Desert, and sailed all the oceans.
After meeting for the first time in Berlin, and following by their marriage in Venice, the young couple – though they didn’t speak the same language – easily agreed on what their future would be based: Their motto became Per Aspera ad Astra.
Stefania left the press office in Venice where she worked and devoted herself to Nittardi and their sons Leon and Damiano, who had been born in the meantime.
Deep roots are not afraid of storms: Peter didn’t give up his passion for the sea and continued to participate in important sailing races around the world, but now with Stefania at his side. But their true passion had become Nittardi, where over the years they have planted thousands of oak and olive trees.
Here the strength and soul of the family, like the grapes used for their wines, is nurtured and enriched by the fertile Tuscan soil.
