Estate Fiorentina

Apriti cinema!

Evento inserito nella rassegna Estate Fiorentina 2012

A gathering place dedicated to culture in one of the most beautiful squares in Florence, Piazza SS. Annunziata – perhaps even the “perfect piazza” and thus even more sentient. Apriti cinema!, the open-air arena parked in the shadow of Filippo Brunelleschi’s porticoes and the Michelozzo’s basilica from July 12 to August 4 2012, was meant to be just this. A moment of socialisation to throw new light on this important view of the city, bringing back a cultural event to the space between Pietro Tacca’s fountains after many years; and a model of collaboration between Florentine institutions and producers. Promoted and championed by the Municipality of Florence and OAC\ECRF through Estate Fiorentina 2012, Apriti cinema! was made possible thanks to the decisive contribution of the Osservatorio Arti Contemporanee dell’Ente Cassa di Risparmio, an important sign of the attention being paid to the innovative fermentation stirring in the city. The Fondazione Sistema Toscana and Mediateca Regionale acted as cultural partners, and the Teatro Puccini oversaw the logistics and organisation.
