DIALOGUE WITH ART: "From the messy sun-colored hair the water of the sea dripped onto the very open green eyes" ... this is how Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa describes Lighea, the bewitching siren central character of one of his stories that gave rise to a wine complex and innovative and an equally original label. "It was not easy - says Gabriella, founder of Donnafugata together with her husband Giacomo - to print this label and keep the thousand shades of the colors of the island, portrayed in the original sketch".
