MusArt Festival 2018 in Florence

18 July 2018 to 28 July 2018

In July, in Florence, in a location that is close to Residence Hilda, there is a festival that combines music and art, a real gem for the Florentine Summer. The MusArt Festival, at its third edition, offers first-class concerts in the nearby Piazza Santissma Annunziata, one of the most stunning examples of Renaissance architecture: from July 18 to 28 prominent artists will alternate on stage: Roberto Bolle (perhaps the best dancer in the world, certainly the most famous), Chick Corea Akoustic Band (one of the greatest protagonists of jazz and fusion), Jethro Tull (simply the history of progressive rock for 50 years), Ermal Meta (recent winner of the Sanremo Italian Song Festival).

The exceptional artists listed above perfectly fit with the exceptionality of the remaining evenings with Orchestra of Tuscany and Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino as protagonists. There will also be a final concert 'at Dawn' in the beautiful Chiostro degli Uomini of the Istituto Degli Innocenti.

All these concerts are combined with once in a lifetime events, museum visits, gourmet evenings in collaboration with the renewed Museum of Innocenti and the adjacent and stunning Caffè del Verone, plus the Biblioteca Umanistica dell’Università di Firenze, Chiesa di Santa Maria degli Innocenti, Chiesa di San Francesco Poverino, Giardino del Museo Archeologico, Basilica di Santissima Annunziata and the Mensa della Caritas Diocesana – San Francesco: a cultural event that we at Residence Hilda invite not to miss, our suites and our apartments are the ideal stay for those who want to experience an unforgettable unique week in the center of Florence.
