Ten large wooden wine bar­rels dec­o­rated with the pictures of leg­endary stars of the screen. The Laove­ja­bala project, link­ing the world of cin­ema to wine, is pro­moted by Span­ish graphic duo En­rique Martin and Raùl San Cristòbal, the for­mer a graphic de­signer and the lat­ter an in­te­rior de­signer. Na­tives of La Rioja, the two artists wished to pay trib­ute to Naples by ex­hibit­ing sev­eral pieces from their ‘Film Bar­rels Col­lec­tions’. The un­usual choice of lo­ca­tion makes this ex­hi­bi­tion even more in­ter­est­ing. The ten wine bar­rels are, in fact, on ex­hibit in the hall of the Reinais­sance Naples Ho­tel Mediter­ra­neo. Guests at­tend­ing the event at the ho­tel will be met by images of Malcom X, Al­fred Hitch­cock, Bruce Lee, Al Pa­cino, Philippe Noiret and Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger whose faces grace the sur­faces of the mas­sive wood and steel wine bar­rels dis­played in the foyer. An ex­hi­bi­tion open to the pub­lic with the idea that a ho­tel should not only rep­re­sent an ex­clu­sive space for those stay­ing there but should also serve as a sort of mu­seum space for the city at large. The artists also paid trib­ute to Naples by in­clud­ing a barrel show­ing Sophia Loren em­brac­ing Mar­cello Mas­troianni in their col­lec­tion. An un­for­get­table movie scene that is par­tic­u­larly dear to the hearts of the Neapoli­tan peo­ple. “The col­lec­tion stems from an idea of two worlds that are closely re­lated to our cul­ture, namely wine and cin­ema, and bar­rels pro­vide the ideal me­dia to achieve this. It is our small trib­ute to the world of cel­lu­loid. We have at­tempted to cover all gen­res and

eras” (Laove­ja­bala).
