FESTIVAL/ St Patrick's Day

6pm, March 17

 

 

 

A recently launched Facebook and WhatsApp group called Irish in Italy hosts an online toast to St Patrick's Day March 17, at 6pm. Join their FB page to sign up via eventbrite and take part as the Irish in Italy come together (remotely) to celebrate the patron saint of the emerald isle.

 

 

TF Together

 

 

 

Every weekday at 5pm CET—unless another time is noted—we’re going to try to have something to do together. We have chosen to meet on Go To Meeting or Go To Webinar (depending on the event format). The kind folks at LogMeIn are our technical sponsors; their digital communications packages make it possible for us to meet and interact online. With a wine club on Wednesdays, music, psychologists and more, the line-up is being ever updated. Read more here

 

 

 

DISCOVERY/ Museo Galileo

The Museo Galileo joins the #iorestoacasa campaign by making its digital resources available through the web, a journey through the history of science through educational videos, virtual exhibitions and thematic insights. Videos on their Facebook page share insights and stories as well as the museum's YouTube channel.

 

 

 

MUSIC/ Tempo Reale

6pm, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from March 16-April 3

 

 
 
Meteorological musical improvisation is the innovation theme to the performances that will be streamed via the Tempo Reale Facebook page every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6pm, starting March 16. Musicians improvise, inspired by the weather. Contributors include Agnese Banti, Francesco Canavese, Simone Faraci, Francesco Giomi (concept creator), Andrea Gozzi (coordinator), Giovanni Magaglio, Damiano Meacci and Leonardo Rubboli. 

 

ART/ Florence Academy of Art competition

 

"The sunny street of Costa San Giorgio" by Principle Instructor Tanvi Pathere

 

While the Academy is closed until April 3, that doesn't mean art has to stop too. An international competition hosted by The Florence Academy of Art awards a scholarship for a workshop to the best drawing or painting of the view from your room or home. Send a low-resolution jpg photograph of your completed work to [email protected], with #viewfrommyroom as the subject header. In the body of your email include your full name and how you would like to be credited. A selection of entries will be posted on the Academy's instagram page. Competition closes on April 3. 

Support The Florentine

The Florentine is still here.

“Thank you, The Florentine, for the support you’ve offered to the city of Florence during such a difficult time.”

—Andrea

We’ve kept our promise to stand by your side during lockdown with real-time updates on legislative changes to inform local readers; with thoughtful words and iconic photography in Healing not Broken, a commemorative special issue; a more frequent and redesigned newsletter; and TF Together, our live interview series on Facebook and YouTube.

We’re bruised, but alive. We’re hurt, but refuse to break. Our advertising revenue has all but vanished, but we are striving to stay true to our mission as the English News Magazine in Florence since 2005. It’s thanks to our readers, the international community of Florence, wherever you are in the world that we are still afloat as Covid-19 relinquishes its grip on Italy and the economic crisis begins to bite.

If The Florentine is here tomorrow, it’s thanks to you.

Please donate to help us continue our coverage from this city we love.
