Scandicci Open City starts its final stages with many unmissable appointments. After an extraordinary start in the months of June and July, with many sold out evenings, the review is about to end with really important numbers of admissions.
The summer review of the Municipality of Scandicci returns on Saturday 11 September with an initiative of the Proloco Piana di Settimo Scandicci, in the external square of the Villa di Castelpulci, now home to the Higher School of the Judiciary and once a psychiatric hospital where the Poet Dino Campana was hospitalized from 1918 until his death in 1932. This will be the perfect setting for “Sibilla Aleramo, as beautiful as a dream”. Taking its cue from the last meeting between Dino Campana and Sibilla Aleramo which took place on 13/9/1917 in the Novara prison, the dramaturgy of this show traces one of the most tragic and exciting love stories of our literature. Poetic dramaturgy by Lorenzo Bertolani with Lorella Serni. Musical interventions on Volfango Dami's cello (6 pm - free admission with reservations required).
At the Poggio Valicaia Park, also on 11 September, Ciro Masella with "Afrodita" guides us in a literary dinner among the pages of the most lovable literature, from the immoral recipes of Vazquez Montalban to the aphrodisiac tales of Isabel Allende (8.00 pm - 20 € dinner and show - reservations firstname.lastname@example.org - 3474361862).
Sunday 12 September STA - Spazio Teatrale Allincontro proposes "It's a Wonderful day", an initiative that takes place in a single day and that brings together art, music, theater and dance that take turns over the course of an entire day. A day to enjoy the flow of a moment just for us: the story of a millenary story, the laughter of children, the bodies that move accompanied by music and finally a competition, a theatrical quiz to be together. The proposal is divided into four events distributed over a single day in four different places in the city (free admission subject to availability).
It starts with "Three centuries for three locations" guided tour with theatrical incursions from 7:00 to 8:30. Between Via Poccianti, Piazza Matteotti and Piazzale della Resistenza, a path at dawn to retrace, from the very beginning, the headquarters of the Municipality of Scandicci, established on 23 May 1774.
At the Circolo ARCI Vittorio Masiani - Casa Del Popolo Badia in Settimo, from 9:30 to 11, the children's show "Socks Selvaggi", while at 18:30, at the Park of Poggio Valicaia, Movetrack is staged: a contemporary dance performance in which the public is actively involved. Music creates landscapes that the public can read and fix on a sheet of paper with a drawing, a word, a thought. What has been written will become the starting point for the creation of new extemporaneous choreographic and musical scores. The show is in fact a poetic act, in which the body and the sound relate to the eyes of the beholder.
Finally, at 9:30 pm, “It's a Wonderful day” returns to the Casa Del Popolo in Badia a Settimo with “Wonderful” - theatrical quiz with (question marks) to ward off anxiety.
After the great success of 2020, the TG Suite - La cronaca cantata is back, by the GIANO Cultural Association. A group of artists led by David Riondino select relevant local, national and international news, reworked and set to music and integrated with videos and images.

Daniela Morozzi and Raffaele Palumbo in a live broadcast to try to imagine our future with excellent guests, including comedy, music, readings and interviews. Among the guests of this evening Father Bernardo Abbot of San Miniato al Monte (sold out evening). .
From the book that has nourished the souls of millions of people, namely Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, in search of the pleasure of listening, with a menu that makes us discover infernal and heavenly tastes. Sunday 19 September the welcome return of Ciro Masella to Poggio Valicaia with “Dantesca”, a charity literary lunch, the proceeds of which will be donated to Operation Mato Grosso.
At 6 pm, again on Sunday 19th, the concerts in the parish churches of the Scandiccesi hills return “Armonie inolle - PievInCanto”, starring the Quartetto Ligatura at the church of San Michele in Torri. An appointment that will be repeated on the calendar on September 26, same location and same time, but this time with the Quodlibet Choir.
On the other hand, the show-concert freely inspired by the coming-of-age novel “Anni acerbi” by JP Richter is postponed to September 24th. "Papillons" - this is the title of the appointment scheduled at the Aurora Theater - is a production of the cultural association Art-U that tells the complicated transition to adulthood, through confrontation and conflict between brothers who, in the clumsy attempt to impress a girl they just met at the masquerade ball, they'll reveal and deceive each other. The live performance of Schumann's Opera 2, inspired by the chapter "The Masked Ball" (Larventanz) of Richter's novel, evokes in the viewer that world made up of intense passions and controversial feelings typical of the artistic expression of German romanticism (hours 9.15 pm - admission € 12 - reduced coop members € 10).
