Street Art at Vallepicciola

It's an unusually shaped bottle. It isn't made of glass, which is odd for a wine producer. It's a Bordeaux bottle, but made of polystyrene. Vallepicciola has officially adopted "Casa in Bottiglia" by French artist Abraham Clet, a street art reinterpretation of the icon that has always defined Chianti Classico. The bottle-sculpture, standing 4 meters tall, is a whimsical house with a door, window, and a smoke cloud from the chimney.

It arrived at Vallepicciola through the project "A(rt) message in a (Chianti Classico) bottle,” promoted by the Consorzio del Chianti Classico to celebrate not just wine but also the Chianti region that has long inspired talents and artists. Abraham Clet is one of many. Born in Brittany in 1966, he moved to Florence in 2005 and opened his own studio. He is an ironic and controversial artist mainly dedicated to Sticker Art, a type of Street Art involving the application of stickers, primarily on road signs.

As innovator, Clet creates new visual languages that break with the tradition and the giant bottle featured at the entrance of Vallepicciola is an important testimony to the inestimable value of his art.

A unique opportunity for art lovers.
