Ready to raise "Eyes to Heaven"? This is the claim of the next edition of Calici di Stelle, the summer event of the Wine Tourism and Wine Cities Movement which, from 2 to 12 August, offers tastings, shows and star-gazings in the cellars and wine-growing centers of all Italy. 

Once again this year, during the summer event Calici di Stelle, organised by Wine Tourism and Wine Cities Movement, the partnership with the Italian Astrophile Union provides telescopes in particular areas set up, from which to admire the passage of the so-called tears of San Lorenzo (this year the maximum activity is expected in the night between 12 and 13 August). The theme of this edition, in fact, is “Eyes to Heaven”, but the main attraction remains the wine tasting.

"Wine", said president of Mtv Nicola D'Auria, "continues to be the driving force behind the beautiful evenings organized for years in the villages of Italy thanks to the work of the Movement. The collaboration able to renew between the City of Wine and Mtv is confirmed as an excellent choice for the enhancement of the land and products of our area".

Many events:in Tuscany, 2-12 August will offer events in the themed cellars "Dancing under the stars"; Abruzzo that has chosen the Fortress of Civitella del Tronto as location for "Calici di Stelle" on August 8; and over 100 Italian public squares that will come alive with wine.
