Acqua Panna keeps alive the Medici Family tradition, whom were true gourmands of the Renaissance, inviting young artist to their courts and allowing them to reach their full potential. This patronage tradition saw the rise of great talents such as Filippo Lippi, Sandro Botticelli and Michelangelo, fathers of some of the most important pieces of art of all the times.
The project #ImagineToscana brings to life a new concept of patronage, the so-called “Mecenathism 2.0”. From the Panna estate, young directors are called to interpret the essence of Tuscany, going through themes such as timelessness and the journey. Every short film has a surprising message shaped by the storytelling style of each director. The contents shows different corners of Tuscany, such as its lush rolling hills, but also the Palazzo Strozzi, one of the most beautiful palaces of the Renaissance.
We asked our directors to Imagine Toscana through their own lenses and we invite you to discover these stories and taste the emotions inspired by this land: cradle of the Renaissance, cradle of talent, cradle of Acqua Panna.
