Within walking distance or a short bus ride from the historic centre and covering the entire block between via Ghibellina and via dell'Agnolo, just before viale Giovine Italia, Le Murate is one of Florence's major architectural success stories of the past 20 years. Based on plans made in 1998 by the renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano, Le Murate is also one of the best new places in the city to hang out. Since its official opening in April 2011, the complex, which includes public housing, parking, shops, restaurants, bars and open spaces, has become a cultural and recreational hub. At the Caffé Letterario Le Murate, with its wide-ranging programming, one can meet friends for coffee or a glass of wine; enjoy live jazz, rock or classical music; view art, sculpture or photography exhibitions; attend readings by authors and discuss their latest books; hear poetry readings; and watch a film. At the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, which recently moved its European headquarters to the complex, people can attend seminars, workshops and the monthly Human Rights Tuesday Night meetings.
