Barrique: A Third Life for Wood

Tuesday, July 9, 2013 to Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Celebrating the exquisite craftsmanship that has long been a hallmark of Italian culture, this unique installation – which brings together design, wine, and a social element – is a must-see. Showcasing innovative furniture and other pieces made from discarded wine barrels, Barrique is the result of a special project led by the San Patrignano Community that connects at-risk youths with famous Italian architects through design. For two days only, follow the path from wine to high-end design at The Field Museum.
