An unusual and unprecedented path that will leave aside the 'usual' history of Florence for a fascinating and new musical journey to discover the sound secrets of the Old Town. The Quartet will stop there, where something reddish has happened to the lily city, from Piazza Santa Croce, to Piazza Duomo, to Piazza Signoria, to the old Teatro Comunale of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.The event was born in synergy and with the patronage of Rossini's Marches realities, among which: the Municipality of Pesaro, Rossini150, Rossini Gourmet, RossiniMania, the international music competition 'Città di Pesaro' and the Consulate General of the United States of America in Florence.
