We at Petrolo, vine-growers in Vald’Arno di Sopra, disciples of Nepo di Galatrona, by our Eraclitean, dionysian-epicurean-lucretian, hermetic-fician, leonardian neo-platonic and giorgionesc neo aristotelic tradition, culture and education, romantic and revolutionary, believe that God is in all things and that the art itself is God; that all is fertile, vital, lush and luscious. That man is linked to heaven through his di-wine element and is in all things and all places and lies at the centre of ramified, complex construction of animal and vegetable beings: he is the heart of that infinite relationship between all things that is the Universe-World.
