During Pitti Uomo 90, the city’s contemporary culture offer will be enhanced through a program of events entitled Secret Florence, coordinated by the Commission for Culture of the City of Florence.
Secret Florence is a unique program that combines the contemporary with that part of the city’s great heritage that is usually unseen, far from the better-known tourist attractions, but of enormous historical, architectural and artistic importance. The program brings together various ensembles and actors engaged in different art forms – from music to dance, from the visual arts to film. They all have an international reach and they all work in the city of Florence.
The Secret Florence program is produced and sponsored by the City of Florence with support from Pitti Immagine.
Secret Florence will run from 11 to 13 June 2016 and it will consist of a series of specifically created initiatives, performances and installations. Among these, we must mention: the performance by Virgilio Sieni, a series of choreographic works that relate the gestures and feeling of a community that ACTS through the chorus with teachings of the great Florentine painters and architects; the Living Objects sound performance by Tempo Reale, - by making commonplace objects vibrate the group creates a world of “new” sounds that resonate through the surroundings. And, there will be other events presented by Schermo dell’Arte, Fondazione Fabbrica Europa, Museo Marino Marini and Le Murate.Progetti di Arte Contemporanea.
Realized by: Fondazione Fabbrica Europa, Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea, Lo Schermo dell’Arte Film Festival, Museo Marino Marini, Museo Novecento, Tempo Reale, Virgilio Sieni/Centro di produzione sui linguaggi del corpo e della danza with the coordination of Tempo Reale.
