Posts Tagged ‘Extended hours at the Uffizi’

A unique experience is being offered by the Uffizi Gallery and Florence Museums this summer. If you are, or will be, in Florence through the end of September, GO!

Every Tuesday evening through the 27th of September 2016, the Uffizi gallery will open its doors to the public at no charge (you must have a ticket-see below). A wide array of performances will be given, all performed to enrich your encounter with the greatest art treasures of the Renaissance.

See “Details” below for ticket information.

Uffizi Corridor

From the music and Gregorian chant of the 14th Century to more contemporary artists and performers, these evenings will offer a greater depth to the beauty of the museum’s already rich diversity of art.

As but one example, on July 5 2016 the program provides an evocative music concert with medieval chant. The Ensemble San Felice, composed of five musicians and two singers and conducted by Maestro Federico Bardazzi, will present a selection of music written by the composer and musician of the fourteenth century, Francesco Landini.

To gain a better sense of the profound quality of the work the Ensemble San Felice provides, please take a few minutes to listen to La Musica Della Commmedia, Te Deum Laudamus performed by the ensemble. Click on the photo below to watch the video.
