Among the scheduled appointments, on September 20, " The Love Song Show " by Antonio Branchi and Sonia Coppoli , the love of song hits, a bout and answer that sings in love, betrayal and passion, a repertoire mixed and bizarre, a grotesque tribute to the love of music and songs. Also every Thursday night live jazz music .

Diaframma was formed in Florence in 1981 around the fascinating, talented and complex personality of Federico Fiumani and the equally charismatic character of singer Nicola Vannini (replaced by Miro Sassolini in 1984). Capable of sharing with Moda and Litfiba the favors of what at the beginning of the 80s seemed to be the Italian city with the greatest fermentation of rock, the band delivered to the story several pages to remember. In 1989, the group began to play with Fiumani himself as a singer, and it is always the extravagant artist to start in the following years also a fortunate career as a writer and poet. Current training, in addition to Fiumani's vocals and guitar, includes on the stage Lorenzo Moretto on drums, Edoardo Daidone on guitar and Luca Cantasano on bass.

In the space of La Toraia there are permanent exhibitions , such as those of historical photos of the Alinari brothers , and temporary , of which the photographer Martino Dini and the painter Manuela Gallo were protagonists. Every Thursday night there is space for live music with jazz, swing and manouche, catchy rhythms for fine palates, to make a soundtrack to this area for a long time in abandonment and for 4 years transformed into a meeting place for the inhabitants of the city gourmet space . In fact, the space is kept clean constantly, and the fountain of the neighboring area has been restored, thus returning it to the citizenship.
