the art of Salvatore Incorpora

The fusion of wine and painting

Salvatore Incorpora, a master of multifaceted artistic expression–sculptor, painter and poet–emerges as an emblematic figure in the Italian cultural landscape of the 20th century.

Born in Gioiosa Ionica (Reggio Calabria) on January 1, 1920 and passed away in Linguaglossa in 2010, Incorpora traced a dense and vibrant artistic path, which saw him engaged in a continuous dialogue with matter and color, drawing from it works of deep emotional and visual charge.

His art, difficult to frame in a single current, moves between expressionism and an intensely personal lyrical quest. Sicily, his adopted homeland, and its landscapes, from the barren lands to the lush vineyards of Mount Etna, have provided Incorpora with an invaluable source of inspiration.

His art, difficult to frame in a single current, moves between expressionism and an intensely personal lyrical quest. Sicily, his adopted homeland, and its landscapes, from the barren lands to the lush vineyards of Mount Etna, have provided Incorpora with an invaluable source of inspiration.

Here, among the vivid colors and impetuous shapes of his works, the artist has been able to capture the essence of a contradictory land, capable of showing in the same instant its volcanic ferocity and its Mediterranean sweetness.

His sculptures and paintings, characterized by a bold use of color and figures that often emerge with expressive force, tell stories of men and women marked by life, work, and suffering, but also by hope.

Salvatore Incorpora has masterfully interpreted solemn moments and fragments of everyday life, imprinting in his works a dynamism that seems to defy time.

The connection with the world of wine is one of the most fascinating aspects of his artistic journey. Since the 1950s, Incorpora has been drawn to the world of winemaking, from the traditions associated with the grape harvest to the ancient rituals that accompany the transformation of grapes into wine.

His admiration for these practices is reflected in multiple works, where wine becomes a metaphor for life, joy and sharing.

Salvatore Incorpora’s life and work are a hymn to the beauty of small things, to the greatness of human existence with its contradictions and dramas. Prominent among the awards he has received are international exhibitions, literary prizes, and honorary citizenship of Campodimele and Linguaglossa, testifying to the wide recognition of his contribution to the art world.

Salvatore Incorpora remains a leading figure in the Italian art scene, an artist whose works have been able to recount the complexity of the human soul, celebrating life in all its forms.

The Mosaic of Pippo Musumeci

A treasure set in our winery

Let yourself be enchanted by the “I Palici” mosaic, a tribute in stones and colors to the Sicilian land created by Pippo Musumeci. Housed in our winery, this precious work not only embellishes but becomes a living essence in our Palici Line labels, where art meets wine passion.

Created approximately 20 years ago, the “I Palici” mosaic is a testament to the craftsmanship of Musumeci, a Sicilian artist who discovered and perfected his talent at the prestigious mosaic school in Florence. Using stones of rare beauty from remote corners of the world, Musumeci has woven a visual narrative that captures the soul of Sicily, making every stone a tale, every color an emotion.

This artwork was born out of a special friendship and deep personal connection with Franco Di Miceli, owner and founder of Cantine Patria.

The friendship between the artist and Di Miceli turned into a collaboration, with the mosaic becoming a symbol of the winery’s commitment to cultivating and celebrating its Sicilian roots, not only through wine but also through art that reflects its culture and landscape.

“I Palici” is not only a tribute to myth and history, but also an expression of Cantine Patria’s identity, testifying to the fusion of tradition and innovation. Through this work, we invite each visitor to immerse themselves in a sensory journey that goes beyond taste, discovering the stories, dreams and art that make each bottle of Cantine Patria unique.
