Live From Florence

September Issue of The Florentine: out now

September is always a bittersweet month, even back in Normal Times.

 

 

In 2020, the situation is surreal. Some of us are back at our desks, whether at home or in our actual office buildings, while others long for the days when there was work. Parents are grappling with feelings of relief and concern as children get ready to return to school. At the height of all these mixed emotions, Florence made a bold declaration of intent as Dolce & Gabbana painted our city on its Alta Moda gowns and presented them to the world in singular settings such as the Salone del Cinquecento, the Villa Bardini gardens and the courtyard of Santa Maria Novella. The way ahead looks grim, but there’s a glimmer: the creativity that Italy never ceases to inspire.       

 

 

 

 

That artistry is embodied by Hershey Felder on our September cover. The pianist, performer, producer and innovator will be staging his one-man show George Gershwin Alone at Florence’s Teatro della Pergola on September 14. The innovation lies in the fact that the theatre is merely a set (there’s no in-house audience!) as the performance is live streamed and will remain available on demand for seven days afterwards. In a gesture of great generosity, Hershey is donating the show’s proceeds to The Florentine, Teatro della Pergola and to theatres in the United States. Get your tickets here.
