Estate Fiorentina A review directed almost exclusively to the production of contemporary art
Six months of cultural programs, more than a hundred public places involved, ninety-six associations, more than seven hundred fifty initiatives, almost a million admissions. This is the recipe that made the composition of Estate Fiorentina possible, a review directed almost exclusively to the production of “contemporary art”, based on a common model by participating in co-projects together with associations and cultural institutions of the city. I would start from here to talk about the convinced attention - in terms of production and hospitality - that the City of Florence is giving to its “cultural actors” who work on a daily basis to make the offer of this city more globally competitive. This cultural format has a double objective: to give voice to the local production inviting it to relate with whatever comes from outside and to systematize the wealth of extraordinary places that dot evenly a hundred square kilometers of the City. The latter is a record that does not exist in any other corner of the planet.
