Expo Veneto: the discovery of tradition and historic PlacesIn the year of the Expo, the Veneto region has launched a major initiative to promote regional excellence internationally: through a web portal you can learn about, select and schedule your participation in events organized by companies from the Veneto region, including Nardini! Are you a grappa fan and curious to discover our secrets? We propose a journey through the history of our company, through the two locations that represent its essence: the Grapperia on the Bridge, the oldest distillery in Italy, situated on the entrance to the Ponte Vecchio of Bassano; and Bolle, a modern work of architecture built by Massimiliano Fuksas which will take you on the discovery of our distillation process.

Two worlds: the first suspended, formed by two transparent ellipsoidal bubbles that enclose the research centre laboratory; the other submerged in a space carved into the ground like a natural canyon that houses an auditorium with 100 seats. A descending ramp, generating matrix of the canyon-space, leads to the auditorium and may also be used as open-air grandstands.
The two facing inclined sets of stands form a single continuous arena for launching events. The seated spectator is surrounded by a landscape generated by the arrhythmic development of the sloping walls. Two signs: one refined, elegant, technological and immaterial; the other rough, where the matter, the reinforced concrete becomes the epiphany of the form. A container and a content, positive and negative in continuous tension connected by the slanting structure of the elevator yet immersed in their opposing energy force, pushing the glass bubbles of the laboratories upwards and the auditorium with its heavy bulk downwards underground.
The aim of the project was to meet the need for an auditorium where those interested in the world of grappa could be welcomed all year, an expanded laboratory facility and a space to host internal meetings and events of high cultural value. 2004 marked the 225th anniversary of the company and the Nardini family wanted to celebrate with an architectural icon: a landmark to reinforce the link with the territory and its entrepreneurial culture, and above all one that will remain through time as a sign for the generations to come. The decision was made in 2000 and executed with passion, choosing the path of quality and innovation, entrusting the work to the architect Massimiliano Fuksas. This choice was made by the family’s desire to entrust the plan to an Italian architect; to create a strictly Italian work, just like grappa, but also world reknowned professional, adding international scope to the project.
