PALAZZO BELFIORE APARTMENTS IN FLORENCE

CALCIO STORICO FIORENTINO

June is an exciting time to find yourself in the city of Florence – this weekend especially!

The final match of Calcio Storico Fiorentino is held on this Sunday, June 24, which is the day Florence celebrates its patron saint’s feast day for St. John the Baptist. This day is full of celebration for the people of Florence. Catch the parade through the streets of Florence where you can see the locals dressed in historical costumes as well as all the players of the historic soccer game known as Calcio Storico that begins at Piazza Santa Maria Novella and travels through Florence towards Piazza Santa Croce. The parade starts around 4pm and will lead to the final match that will begin at 5pm between team Rossi of Santa Maria Novella and team Verdi of San Giovanni.

The rich history and culture of this 16th century sport, Calcio Storico Fiorentino, a combination of soccer, rugby, and wrestling is very rough as there seems to be no rules observed at all. All of the matches are held at Piazza Santa Croce which is the traditional location for all the matches of Calcio Storico. There are four teams from the historical neighborhoods of Florence who play each other in two playoffs and then the winners play in the final match. 

The day of festivities ends with a night of fireworks which are launched from Piazzale Michelangelo so if you are in town, make sure you have a good view from the river .

Tickets for the final can be purchased at the Box Office in Via delle Vecchie Carceri 1, Firenze from 11:00am Payment by bancomat, credit card (no AMEX) or debit card.

ARTIGIANATO & PALAZZO

This Thursday 17 May marks the opening of the 24th Edition of the exhibition, ARTIGIANATO & PALAZZO in the beautiful Corsini Gardens.  An exhibition founded in 1995 by Neri Tortigiani and promoted by Princess Giorgiana Corsini as an opportunity to appreciate and give value to the artisan in this present day.

Each year around 100 artisans are selected to be the protagonists of this unique exhibition, the majority coming from Tuscany but there is also a representation from other parts of Italy and even some International artisans that you can discover at work as you wander around the curated private gardens.

Each year at ARTIGIANATO & PALAZZO an established Artisan is given the spotlight in a ‘Mostra Principe’ celebrating the success of a business or product that started life in the artisans workshop and has now arrived at International success.

Each day the exhibition will feature music by Naomi Berrill, live cooking “Ricette di Famiglia / Family Recipes” by the talented chefs from Desinare, various activities and various street food that will satisfy from breakfast to the hour of the aperitivo!
