#UffiziLive Summer 2017


posted by on News


The Uffizi Gallery has just offered the first details on this year’s summer #UffiziLive cultural program. For now, the basics are just that the summer’s prolonged hours start on June 6 and run through September 26 every Tuesday. On these Tuesdays, concerts and other exhibitons are offered as brief “intermissions” while visitors navigate the museum’s halls.

On these Tuesdays, the museum will remain open until 9:50pm, with concerts starting at 7pm. Take the time between 5pm and 7pm to enjoy the museum’s permanent collections and the view from the terrace before enjoying the shows.

Here’s the program for June:

June 6: The first show for the summer will open with the musical duo group Mazzoni–Riganelli with a sax and harmonica concert with conteporary songs from Le Marche, the region highly damaged by last year’s earthquakes. In fact, the Uffizi will be donating 1 euro from every ticket sold during this evening to the fund that is working on restoring works damaged during the earthquake.

June 13: The Collettivo ARTEDA from Rimini will present Innesti plurali, an itinerant performance that includes dance, live painting, digital painting and performing arts to express visual and body languages that adapt to nearby works of art.

June 20: The program continues with a concert of baroque music with guitar and vihuela by the all-female Spanish ensemble Dolce Rima, coming from Seville for the occasion. Recreating the atmosphere of the times in the Caravaggio rooms, the visitors will travel back to Italian and Spanish courts from the late Renaissance and Baroque.

June 27: The program for the month of June ends with a dance performed by the group Sosta Palmizi from Arezzo, whose project Venere e il vento is born from the stidy of the model of the female figure, Venus, and the element of wind, that come together in Botticelli’s famous work but who then influence successive works in other schools, by other authors and in other works within the museum.
