It is a tribute to one of the most controversial accessories but also the most elegant of fashion history that Cantina di Soave in Borgo Rocca Sveva celebrate 8 March preview.
It will be the heel, or better, the woman with the heel, elegance par excellence, protagonist of the aperitif which will take place in the Swabian Castle the Village 7 March and will propose the first glass of Lessini Durello Spumante DOC Cchia in tribute to all the women who will wear a heel at least 8 cm (I would have said 10 cm!!! 😉 ).
Will be set up for the occasion, a photographic set ready to capture all those who wear a heel at least 8 inches tall; the photos will then be posted on the Facebook page of Borgo Rocca Sveva, vino365.it blog, on Pinterest and for those who wish to receive them at home will be printed and sent to the address indicated during the evening.
Cantina di Soave chose a convivial and glamorous way to celebrate the occasion of women's day: under the banner of lightness and dynamism, characteristics that are typical of the Lessini Durello Spumante Cchia, a wine with a natural vocation for the bubbles and then for the toast.
The high-heeled, symbol of femininity par excellence, became an ever more present in the female wardrobe. If in ancient times were the hallmark of a condition of inferiority, in the 16th century arrive in Europe with the French name "chopines”, It was a sort of under-particularly high from sole, often little comfortable, to the point that the wealthy should help Europeans to be able to walk. At the end of the 16th century were the footwear of the nobles at the Court of King. During the Ancien Régime men and women wore heeled shoes to distinguish socially but also because the heels responded to contemporary aesthetic criteria: refinement and delicacy. Between the 17th and 18th centuries the heel was in fact one of the highest signs of wealth, but also of political favoritism, for example, only the favorites were allowed to wear red heels at the Court of Louis XIV, and only the King could wear them always. After a period of stigma of the heel, in the twentieth century reappears, as only female privilege, symbolizing the global improvement of the status of women in the world.
