It just takes one glance around the grounds at Allegretto Vineyard Resort in Paso Robles to see the Fibonacci sequence in play. This sequence is displayed throughout the resort to create harmony, beauty, and peace. So… who exactly is Fibonacci and why do we celebrate him?
Also known as Leonardo Pisano of Pisa, Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician in the late 11th Century. He is remembered on November 23 (11/23 representing the first four numbers) for the Fibonacci sequence; an integer sequence whereby each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. This sequence is intimately connected with the Golden Ratio, another mathematical construct. And although it may not be obvious, there is definitely a connection between these mathematical concepts and the composition of artwork.
From the Renaissance onward, artists have recognized that the Fibonacci Spiral and the Golden Ratio created dramatic and attractive paintings which reflected an aesthetically pleasing principle. One of the beauties of the Fibonacci sequence is that it is evident all over the natural world and may be found in the most surprising places such as the petal arrangements in flowers, the ordering of leaves in plants, pine cones, and seashells just to name a few.
With this in mind, the Fibonacci sequence was applied to the design and layout of the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, so guests would feel connected to their space, to the past, and to one another, whether they understand the mechanics of it or not. From the elaborate artwork to the Piazza Del Magico and the East Garden, guests will enjoy the purposeful artistic design that is reflective of Fibonacci.
Here are some great ways to celebrate Fibonacci Day…
Study and research the Fibonacci sequence- Take some time to research this great man and all who have built off his work. There is so much about the sequence that will lead you to some fascinating discoveries.
Get out and explore- Go to the beach, go on a hike, or head out in nature to find out where it exists…which is just about everywhere. You can even look in your own home or workplace to find where the Fibonacci sequence structures the world around you.
Enjoy the Allegretto Vineyard Resort- Come join us to celebrate Fibonacci Day. This mathematical sequence can be seen virtually everywhere at the resort in the art, architecture, and landscape design. Enjoy a bottle of our award-winning wine, lounge in a cabana by the pool, or explore the gardens and vineyards as you seek to find the Fibonacci sequences which lie within.
