DIALOGUE WITH ART:Gabriella Anca Rallo (founder of Donnafugata, with her husband Giacomo) thought of "fleeing" and beginning a new life, passing from the arts to the land. Gabriella is a woman with the wind in her hair who is never at rest. Gabriella invented La Fuga, a label that not only suggests movement but also sunshine and the land.
