The distinctive bottle of Italicus along with the wonderfully aromatic bouquet of its ingredients stands under the Columns of the Olympian Zeus, an architectural monument of Athens and the largest temple of the Ancient Greece.
The choice of the monument is not a coincidence but it is used as a metaphor for the story of Italicus. The construction of the temple, began in the 6th century BC , but it was not completed until the reign of the Roman conqueror, in the 2nd century AD, some 638 years after the project had started, like the deep in time history of Rosolio and the renaissance of this unique drink after many years. Good taste will always be a driving force of what mankind is capable of.
Last but not least, somewhere in the painting there is a hummingbird that seems to ignore the flowers and stares at the bottle which after all…. has the taste that matters!!!
