June brings us warm temperatures and long sunny days to enjoy and discover a unique Italian region: Tuscany. And what a better occasion than of the hand of the Tuscan Sun Festival? Yes, you have heard well. For the first time in its ten years of existence, Florence hosts this magnificent outdoor festival usually held in the town of Cortona.
Of international renown, the Tuscan Sun Festival is considered as the region’s première arts event with an exhaustive program that honours every single art camp that pours a little more colour into our world: music, visual arts, culinary and wine, literature, film and local culture. A programme based upon international classical artists, actors and chefs that bring together all those small pleasures that make life shine brighter.
Founded in 2003 by Barrett Wissman, cellist Nina Kotova and author of Under the Tuscan Sun, Frances Mayes, the Festival has traditionally been led by well – known artists together with the proud – hearted Tuscan community maintaining its unique identity as a festival of “artists to live with the artists”.
Thanks to the contributions of the Cassa di Risparmio and the collaboration of the Fondazione Teatro della Pergola and the sponsorship of Florence Town Hall, the Tuscan Sun Festival develops into a new dimension: wider and more prestigious with the participation of personalities of the highest level.
Music, theatre, literature and exquisite cuisine await for you from the 11th – 18th June in this festival honouring all five senses. Il Salviatino, the best luxury hotel in Florence, invites you to discover this opportunity along with the perfect stay. Enjoy Tuscany like never before.
