closed 50 shades of ruby.

The show

Following the success of the traditional appointment From knowledge to flavor, the Foundation offers, on Saturday 2 February at 3.30PM, 50 shades of ruby. Colors and aromas between miniatures and glasses.

The appointment includes a visit to some manuscripts of the Library, each associated with a wine produced by the Cantina Sociale della Serra di Piverone. An event linked to the stories of books and vines, following their natural essences. The wine comes from a plant that collects every single substance from the soil, re-proposing the characteristics of the terroir of origin in the glass, through the colors, the smells and the flavors. The medieval manuscripts were made using inks, pigments, lacquers, binders and dyes: all mostly vegetable and mineral substances, selected for their characteristics and lasting, keeping intact the transmission of knowledge.

The participants will then be given the opportunity to know the manuscripts of the Capitular Library and the raw materials used for their writing and decoration, tasting three matched wines, representative of the territory and of the vineyards from which the grapes come. 50 shades of ruby is an event organized in collaboration with the Cantina Sociale della Serra, located on the southern slope of the moraine hill of the Serra, founded in 1953, which now has 250 members located in 18 municipalities. The winemaker, sommelier and vice-president Marcello Borsetto will tell us about the wines of the winery.

On 2 February, the Museo del Tesoro del Duomo will be the scene of a riot of colors and aromas to discover an unusual perfect combination. The appointment, including visit and tasting, will cost € 15.00.

The places for the event are limited and it is necessary to register, by February 1st, by writing to or by calling 0161 51650.
