The Maggio of Summer in the Courtyard of Palazzo Pitti
The Maggio of Summer in the Courtyard of Palazzo Pitti. The ‘Maggio of Summer’ in the Courtyard of Palazzo Pitti. Until July 27, ballet and opera concerts return after many years in an historical setting for the Festival, where Luchino Visconti staged the Egmont and Luciano Berio his version of ‘rock’ Orfeo by Claudio Monteverdi. The sixteenth century Courtyard of Palazzo Pitti, a place among the most evocative of Medici Florence, which takes its name from the architect Bartolomeo Ammannati, which was entrusted with the task of expanding the Pitti Palace, offers a stage of natural beauty, where the glaze of time and the evocative charm of the place, in an ideal atmosphere, capable of harmoniously combing art and music, dance, word and architecture.
Palazzo Pitti is, in all its views (Boboli Gardens, Neptune Nursery, Piazzale della Meridiana, Piazzale di Bacco, Bath Swan, Field of Pillars, the Amphitheatre, the White Room, etc..) an placedear to the Teatro of Maggio, which since its origins utiliezed this space to transform views and panoramas in scenes ideals, attended by the Florentines from 1933 to 2009, in hundreds of shows. If the last concerts date back to 2009, and still exhibitions and meetings with the public have brought spectators to Maggio at the Palazzo Pitti until a few years ago, in fact, to trace a season so rich in productions, ballets, concerts, including the construction of an opera, we must go back far back in time.
