Where classical music meets modernity: L’Opera di Firenze

In a previous article we wrote about Florence as a gastronomic capital. Today we want to widen that concept by not only calling it a gastronomic capital, but a whole modern, avant-garde capital. The Opera house (L’Opera di Firenze) is a proof of it. Built to host more than 2000 spectators in its outdoor cavea and with 1100 seats in the auditorium, The Opera house was thought to be a piece of contemporary architectural design that connects the historical with the youngest side of Tuscany’s heart. And of course, as an undeniable meeting point for artists and citizens, The Opera house is hosting the 77th edition of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, a true example of Florence’s rich cultural life and an event of international renown.
This year the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino is including a variety of activities, from classical music to cinema, from conferences to dance, in order to reach everyone’s preferences.

From Il Salviatino, your 5 stars hotel in Florence, we sincerely invite you to live this experience of complete enjoyment in our city. We are waiting for you!

A short trip to the East at Casa Martelli

There is a kind of magic in the Middle East that fascinates us; a passion that started during the 19th century. Napoleon’s campaigns had a lot to do with the beginning of it, because the western civilization could take a look at the Eastern mysteries for the first time. Several men of that time went abroad to discover themselves these incredible, unseen territories. And one of them was Carlo Martelli (1850 – 1945) who travelled to the Holy Land with some friends. Between the 26th August and the 24th October 1879 they visited Alexandria, Cairo Port Said, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Emmaus, the Dead Sea, the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Damascus and Beirut. When he came back home, he brought some extraordinary souvenirs, like the 24 portraits that now make Viaggio in Oriente, the exhibition that started last June and that have been extended until the 10th May, at Casa Martelli, on Thursdays from 2 pm. to 7 pm. and on Saturdays from 9 am. to 2 pm.

The young Carlo Martelli feel in love with the colors, the costumes and the light of these exotic places. He praised the painters and photographers who captured that beautiful essence because he could bring a little of it back home. And now, we thank him for we have inherited such a great legacy from his part.

And from Il Salviatino, we recommend you to take a short trip to the East without even leaving Florence.

Jackson Pollock vs. Michelangelo

At first sight you wouldn’t find any common points between Michelangelo and Jackson Pollock. Both of them were great artists but the style of one has nothing to do with the style of the other. They also lived in completely different times. However, they had something in common: the capacity of creating artworks meant to touch the public’s hearts. Now, in order to commemorate the 450th anniversary of Michelangelo’s death, a special exhibition named La figura della furia (The fury’s figure) will be shown at il Palazzo Vecchio starting on April 15th.

Action painting will face the Renaissance. In addition, the influence of Michelangelo’s works in the young Pollock will be exposed. The event is thought to be a sort of experiment, trying to compare these two geniuses and their respective times.

Soon we will be giving you more details of La figura della furia, but we want this to act as an appetizer. Are you hungry for culture? Florence is your best choice.
