On Saturday, May 12th, 2018, German Chancellor Angela Merkel received the Lamp of Peace of St. Francis from the Franciscan community in Assisi for "her work of conciliation in favor of the peaceful coexistence of peoples".

The award was followed by a private greeting in the Chapter Hall with the President of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and the Prime Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, representing Italy.

At the end of the meeting the three illustrious personalities go to lunch, where they choose the new label of Tenuta Fontana: civico 2, the Falanghina del Sannio, obtained from organic farming.

"Civico 2 was the official sparkling wine throughout the day full of a series of events," comments Antonio, who together with his sister Mariapina, represents the fifth generation of the Fontana's family."

Our honour is indescribable for our participation as Official Sponsor in this important event that has welcomed prestigious national and international politicians to the city of Assisi" concludes MariaPina Fontana, co-founder of the homonymous estate.
