Our new green structure has given us so many satisfactions: since May 2016, the international mentions and awards that the sustainable project created by Made Associati of Treviso has made us proud of our workplace have been truly numerous. Let’s see them all!
SELECTION OF THE PROJECT WITHIN THE ITINERANT EXHIBITION ATSUKO UEDA 2019 – TOKYO
The most recent, from which we are still waiting for some photos, but it is really so: the project lands in Japan! Atsuko Ueda, from the Architects Studio Japan Inc., is a Japanese company that is preparing a traveling exhibition of the international prize of Barbara Cappochin (award for which the winery was selected as a project for the Veneto region 2017) in Japan in Tokyo. What to say? Stay tuned!
EXCELLENCE OF LANDSCAPE AT VINITALY 2018 – VERONA
How can we forget last year’s Vinitaly? At Vinitaly 2018 our winery was declared “landscape excellence” after having participated in “Wine & landscape”, an event organized by Mipaaf, the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies in collaboration with Paysage / Topscape, an international magazine on Landscape Architecture. The event wanted to host the cellars built according to environmental sustainability criteria, inviting the producers and architects themselves to talk about themselves. The initiative highlighted how wine is also an experience of the landscape, an indelible resource of time, and added value to work, above production itself. A very important Italian award, which we carefully store in our Wine Shop!
One of the awards that most moved us and made us proud of what we have in our hands today: 2018 was the year of the Venice Biennale where the project of our Winery was exhibited,
The project was presented at the 2018 Biennale, chosen and selected from over 500 projects on the Peninsula. “Archipelago Italy – Projects for the future of the internal territories of the country” is the title of the curator Mario Cucinella’s project for the Italian Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale (26 May – 25 November 2018) promoted by the General Management Contemporary art and architecture and urban suburbs, MiBACT ”. An immense satisfaction! and you have visited it?
We also received a nomination for the BIG architecture prize in Lubjana. Here’s what they wrote about us: “New Bio Winery Cantina Pizzolato: the landscape of Treviso, with its fabrics, material compositions, interconnected patterns and colours plays a leading role in this project. The agrarian landscape, made of regular rows of vineyards and poplar trees, constitutes the natural backdrop to the design of this wine cellar.
The requalification project involves new spaces and new buildings dedicated to the winery but are developed integrating also the existing parts for the formation of a functionality and homogeneous image. The new building is located alongside the existing buildings to create a compact nucleus of the different work activities. The office space is structured to be an representative image of the company, its sensibility and of the always organic production (this year it will celebrate 35 years of activity, certified organic and vegan for all types of wines produced). The primary material is beech wood used both inside and outside. The use of a natural material like wood is inserted within the agricultural landscape, recalling analogies of colour, material and times of aging. This process encompasses within itself the precise environmental philosophy of the Cantina and of its natural products that shows also in the character of the material utilized”.
Then, in 2017, we received the mention for the prestigious Mies Van Der Rohe award. Here is the mention and to read more click in the title of this section: “Pizzolato Winery in Treviso, Italy, nominated to the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2017. The Award is organised by the team of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission”.
Also in 2017 came the news of the selection for the Cappochin Prize as “regional section winners”.
Here is the mention: “With regard to the regional section, another winning project was named and two mentions were awarded, including the” Cantina Pizzolato – the winery with BIO roots, architects Adriano Marangon and Michela De Poli (studio Made Associati) . The jury wanted to reward the strong rooting of the project in the rural architectural culture of Veneto, given by the “interesting volumes, clearly linked to traditional buildings and the use of wood from a nearby controlled forest”.
Who knows how many other satisfactions our cellar will give us: if you want to visit it, don’t hesitate to contact us.
