Yesterday was a great day here at Nittardi! Johann Willsberger, an Austrian artist, together with two blacksmiths from Bavaria came to install a beautiful new sculpture that now protects the entrance of our little cantina, in the back of the garden. Mr Femfert, Léon, the artist himself and the blacksmiths – with the help of our tireless Resul – lifted up and placed the 100kg-iron statue manually, not to ruin the unique, hand-beaten piece (find a video of the operation on our Instagram here). Before the placing of the sculpture, a little ceremonial took place: after a toasting with our Grappa, everyone poured a little inside the basement of the statue for good luck. Prost!
