Artisti per Frescobaldi is a Prize in contemporary art that represents a tradition of patronage and promotion of the arts in the Frescobaldi family, which has produced wines in Tuscany for seven hundred years. Since the Renaissance, the Frescobaldi family has commissioned works of art by famous artists, such as Filippo Brunelleschi and Donatello.
The family’s connection with artists continues with the Artisti per Frescobaldi Prize, which is presided over by Tiziana Frescobaldi and curated by Ludovico Pratesi. For each edition, three young artists are asked to interpret one of the family estates in Tuscany.
The second edition takes place in Germany and involves artists Yuri Ancarani, Michael Sailstorfer and Jorinde Voigt. Each artist has created a work inspired by the estate of Castello di Nipozzano.
