Festival of performing arts
The summer festival of performing arts of the Uffizi with music, dance, theatre, happenings on every Tuesday night from June to September. Many projects will be realized by young artists from all over Italy and abroad as well as by people with "young ideas". And women too will play a fundamental part not only as onstage performers but also as protagonists of many artistic subjects focused on themes, features and faces of those famous women made immortal in so many artworks on display in the Gallery of Statues and Paintings of the Uffizi. The museum also opens up to the contemporary in a dialogue between the ancient and new performing arts: there will be in fact plenty of experimental and innovative cross-over projects including captivating digital technologies such as specimens of light design and electro-acoustic performances. Particular attention will be dedicated to international projects too, for the visitors of the Uffizi are extremely motley in terms of languages, cultures and cultural sensitivities. Two special guests from abroad too, from Spain and England.
