Back on July 13, the long-awaited programming of the Giardino dell'ArteCultura, the summer program of the Giardino dell'Orticoltura, included in the events of the Florentine Summer. Until the end of September, every day many activities will enliven the famous Florentine park for entertainment and participation in all age groups based on their availability and their interests.

Saturday 14 hours 21-22: Theatrical show "Sguardo Meticcio" - Sanguemisto theater company. The show, which takes its inspiration from the Gianmaria Testa concept-album "From this part of the sea", explores the theme of "migrations" without seeking a pietistic look of the public, but provoking the intelligence and involving the hearts in making people feel the beauty of diversity that integrate. On the scene four musicians, three actors and two dancers alternate and mix in dance scenes, songs, acting and video projections, for a strong public involvement.
Sunday 15 hours 19-22: Sunday Jazz Music Festival - Applestalking trio .
The Trio inaugurates the Sunday jazz festival at the Giardino dell'ArteCultura, which will accompany us throughout the summer. The band on stage has been active for about 10 years and offers a repertoire of original pieces inspired by jazz-rock-dub. The transversal sound full of reminiscences is motivated by the militancy of the individual musicians in numerous Florentine bands in the context of swing, indie rock, reggae and afrobeat. Line up: Maurizio Piccioli (guitar), Leonardo Baggiani (bass), Riccardo Bartolozzi (drums).
Monday, July 16 - 7 pm (TO BE CONFIRMED): Rick Hutton Acoustic Trio rock concert. The historic face of Videomusic Rick Hutton will tell the story of rock revisited in an acoustic way, with the addition of new songs. Along with the Rick Hutton Acoustic Trio, the audience will be faced with a musical tale of the golden decades of rock, narrated by those who were present in the first person.
Tuesday 17 hours 19-23: Dinner at the kiosk based on pizza, salad and hand-rolled piadine romagnole. Craft beers, artisanal, gluten-free, organic drinks, fresh fruit glasses and a relaxing atmosphere!
Wednesday 18 hours 19-22: ArtGarden - "Shukran" by Kinesis Contemporary Dance Company and Giulia Anastasio. "Shukran" is a performance born from the collaboration between the artists Edoardo Saulino (painter) and Giulia Anastasio (dancer). The show comes from the idea of transmitting to the viewer the feelings experienced by the undersigned during their trip to Morocco: the contrast, the wonder, the curiosity and the rejection are the predominant emotions that characterized the journey and that the two artists aim to make re-emerge during the performance. "Shukran" develops as an emotional listening among the artists: listening that acts as a bridge between painting and dance, between colors and movement. The bond takes shape from the contact between the brush and the body; the colors turn out to be the extension of bodily movements and their source of inspiration.
Thursday 19 hours 18: Kind erGarten. Evening dedicated to families and children with graphic experiments and sensory explorations. The program "The child's drawing is a means of his thought", instructions for use: open your eyes, free your emotions, get your clothes dirty and have fun!

Originality and interpretative freshness are the basis of their show presented successfully in the circuit of specialized reviews and in the clubs of the entire peninsula. Line up: Fabrizio Berti (harmonica, drums, vocals), Giacomo Ferretti (guitar, vocals), Piero Ferretti (bass, vocals).
Saturday 21 hours 19-23: Dinner at the kiosk based on pizza, salad and hand-rolled piadine romagnole. Craft beers, artisanal, gluten-free, organic drinks, fresh fruit glasses and a relaxing atmosphere!

We all remember the juke box, or at least we know what it was: the juke box, however, could not contain the millions of songs found and listenable with the search engines of today ... had available a selected number of songs chosen among the most beautiful and in vogue of the present and the past, Italian or foreign, smooth, rock and roll or discomusic. In place of the machine you put actors in flesh and blood, and maybe some of them are also musicians. Instead of the discs you put poems, excerpts from comedies, tragedies or narratives, songs, and even theatrical improvisation. And not registered, but performed live, on the spot. This is the Coin Theater. Cast: Davide Finizio, Giuseppe Intrieri, Veronica Natali, Francesco Renzonie with the extraordinary participation of Chiara Foletto.
Tuesday, 31 hours 19: Teatro Compagnia Jena Valentin . The only Italian cover band of MontyPython. Actors: Irene Cecchi, Alessio Coluccia, Olivia Fontani, Marta Foschi, Serena Mannatrizio, Filippo Rak. Technician and lights Daniele Nocciolini. The band's starting point was a sultry Ferragostan afternoon in 2006, when a Florentine actor, seated under the shade of a tree, was looking for an original and fun idea to bring to the scene. After long reflections, he decided to try his hand at the repertoire of an English comic group among the most famous not only in Britain, but even in the world: Montypython. The choice fell on them because he considered them something out of the traditional patterns of comedy, a form of entertainment different from the usual. Their sketches are made of temporal jumps, of sudden interruptions to connect to other sketches that have nothing to do with the previous ones, and then rejoin with the original; they are imbued with word games; of non-sense comedy and a ferocious satire on a cornerstone of English society (but missing in Italy): classism.
