Asolo Prosecco and Freya Stark: an Asolo story. Presentation of the celebratory bottle | Saturday 11 November 2023 11.00 am | Asolo furnace.

The Asolo Prosecco Consortium celebrates 100 years since the birth and 30 years since the death of Freya Stark by dedicating a limited edition institutional bottle to her. Inventor of travel writing , icon of freedom and female emancipation, Freya Stark loved Asolo intensely, so much so that she chose the village as a good retreat and place to be buried.
To celebrate the figure of the writer on the occasion of the anniversary, the conference Freya Stark - between West and East will also be held in Asolo on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 November, curated by the archaeologist and manager of the Civic Museum of Asolo Cristina Mondin.
The event includes two sessions: one dedicated to Freya Stark in the Asolo area and the second dedicated to the Middle East and the places she visited starting from 1927.
