This year marks the 17th edition of the event “Settembre in Piazza della Passera” ! After taking a sabbatical last year. The festival was conceived by Stefano Di Pucci, owner of Trattoria 4 Leoni together with the cultural association “In Piazza”, under the direction of Alessandro Di Puccio and in collaboration for the organisation with Momy Manetti. The initial plan was to include all the main squares of the Oltrarno, with the idea of using art to enhance the territory and an opportunity to meet and discover new talents.
The piazza has come alive this week with two concerts each evening, all with free admission and the idea this year was to involve young students in the event. The ‘Giovani in Piazza’ format, created with the Jazz department of the Florence Academy of music offers young talents in the sector the opportunity to open the first three evenings.
