Musart Festival Florence
From July 13 to 24 in Piazza Santissima Annunziata
This year the magic of the Musart Festival returns once again. The square in front of our Hotel turns into a theater under the stars, welcoming the greatest artists of international music and dance. And that’s not all, during the Musart Festival (before each show) visitors will also have free admission to the various churches, museums, and palaces neighboring Piazza Santissima Annunziata.
Roberto Bolle will be opening the Florence Musart Festival on July 13. The star of La Scala in Milan and the American Theater in New York will be the artistic director as well as a performer of "Roberto Bolle and Friends". Guests who choose one of our rooms with a view of the square will even be able to enjoy the show from their hotel window!
On July 15 Nicola Piovani, Oscar winner for Best Original Dramatic Score, goes on stage to direct the orchestra in "Piovani dirige Piovani": music from the most beautiful soundtracks. On July 16, the great singer Francesco De Gregori will be accompanied by the orchestra in a symphonic interpretation of his greatest hits.
Among the international performers are the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra on July 17, Genesis Revisited with the former Genesis Steve Hackett on July 18, and Caetano Veloso on July 19. The Canadian singer-songwriter Loreena McKennitt returns to Florence on July 20 with her new album and on July 22 the Ensemble Symphony Orchestra will present us with the magical soundtrack of Game of Thrones in Tribute Experience. The legendary Italian band Perigeo joins the Musart Festival on July 23 for their One Shot Reunion. The grand finale on July 24 will be celebrated with an unprecedented Concert at dawn by the jazz pianist Danilo Rea, in the Cortile degli Uomini of the Istituto degli Innocenti at 4:45 in the morning.
