Main Event - World Premiere
The meeting of the Arts in a city like Florence can only be a wish for a new artistic Renaissance. The primordial element with its colors, lyrical spectacle, poetic sparkle, infinity of constantly changing water and sky will create that concert of colors, that harmony of chromatic vibrations to which Music will join. The winning musical work of the first edition of the international composition award 'OLD BRIDGE', organized by our Festival and curated by Maestro Francesco Traversi, will join these reflecting landscapes. The Arno, Florentia's water mirror, will become the mirror of the soul, a vibrant mosaic, decomposed into thousands of particles of light and sound, both born from waves of matter. Three ensembles by Ottoni will give voice to the musical creation, arranging themselves on Ponte Vecchio, on the Lungarni and, for the Arno river, on board the historical boats of the Renaioli, thanks to the usual collaboration with the cultural association "I Renaioli".
Thanks to the synergies with Laura Giannoni of the cultural association "Ponte Vecchio" and Gabriella Mari for the "Cordon Bleu" culinary art school in Florence: the international culinary award 'ROSSINI NEL PIATTO'. A tribute to Tuscan cuisine, exported to France by the Medicean Queen Caterina, and to the Pesaro-based gourmet Gioachino Rossini, on the 150th anniversary of her death.
Organized by the Ponte Vecchio Association, the evening ends with Charity Dinner and Jazz music under the Lodges, with the IBW Jazz House Band - formed by Massimiliano Carlderai on piano, Marco Benedetti on double bass and Stefano Rapicavoli on drums - and the Festival soloists , on the beautiful landscape surrounding the Ponte Vecchio. A unique event of its kind, will give the public the opportunity to get excited and experience a show never thought of.
