Florentine and Persian New Year 2019, from 19 to 25 March at the Villa Strozzi lemon-house

The cultural association Atelier de Angelis - Maison d'artiste with the collaboration of IsolottoLegnaia.it and the patronage of Quartiere 4 of the Municipality of Florence organizes the third edition of the Florentine and Persian New Year's Eve 2019 - united in a spring equinox .

From 19 to 25 March , it will be a week of festivities where Florentine and Persian traditions, culture and art will merge and compare. Every day from 10 to 13 and from 15 to 19.30 exhibitions, meetings, workshops for adults and children, dances, concerts and games. A snack is offered to children every afternoon at 5pm. The party will end on the 25th, Florentine New Year, with a toast of greeting and the symbolic Salto del fuoco, as a good omen for the new year.

"We of the Maison d'Artiste, with the intention of telling and weaving distant cultures and traditions, but united by the celebration of the spring equinox, we created the Florentine and Persian New Year and this year, we bring to the fore with strong motivation the visual arts, performing arts, music and crafts, understood as areas of cohesion and growth - explained Benedetta de Angelis , co-curator of the event together with Fiamma Antoni Ciotti Farulli - with the strong intent to bring people together to the arts, in the belief that art is also a playful medium, we give life to a real creative forge, with a heterogeneous offer of activities to which the public is called to actively participate ".

"We have created the open Studio format so that anyone who wishes to meet can make use of the available space and material, including a piano, easels, paper and brushes - the artist announced - There will also be a painting exhibition of 38 works by artists, purposely of heterogeneous origin and experience, to which will gradually be added the works created within the laboratories and the open Studio . The common thread of the Collective is spring, rebirth, the new coming. To celebrate Nowruz, (the Persian New Year), the Table of the Seven Ss will be set, with the symbolic objects of tradition ".

"Since its birth we have believed in the relevance of this event for our neighborhood - commented Carlo Casini , founder of IsolottoLegnaia.it - This is because rediscovering and enhancing the cultural and social identity of this territory also means promoting dialogue and confrontation with that of other cultures and traditions that are part of our community. This relationship can only pass from a work of communication, active knowledge and information of what is happening in our territory in its many facets. For this reason, for the third consecutive year, we gladly accepted the request to sponsor it as a media partner . And given the growing success of the first two editions, we believe that even 2019 will not be outdone ».
