Fiesole’s ‘Festa della Music’ Music Marathon

Hundreds of young musicians from the Fiesole Music School, both young and young at heart will perform in Fiesole’s Villa la Torraccia park (via delle Fontanelle 24) for this year’s “Festa della Musica.” Throughout the festive day of June 24, ensembles and soloists, in addition to the Florence Vocal Ensemble, led by Ennio Cari and the newly-founded multi-cultural chorus, “Libere Voci dal Mondo, will flood the Villa and the San Domenico Church open spaces around the villa and the San Domenica church with sounds of classical music continuously from 9 am to 9 pm.

The street to the villa will be closed to traffic for the Festa della Musica. To facilitate transport, there will be electric cars within the park and a shuttle bus running from San Domenico to Villa La Torraccia (8 am to 9 pm).

Entrance to the event is €10, but discounts are available (€7 for visitors under 26 and over 65).  (shiri gross)
