2° Festa della Cultura - San Giovanni Battista
Firenze 2013

venerdì 21 - martedì 25 giugno

The second year of the San Giovanni Battista Festa della Cultura was again dedicated to the people of Florence in celebrating the feast day of the city’s patron saint on 24th June. Last year’s programme offered five days of events, including a sacred art exhibition, a conference and symposium, two concerts of contrasting ancient and modern music plus a guided visit to mosaics and sculptures of John the Baptist in the historic centre.


As before, the event was presented by the founders of the festival i Buontalenti - a group of colleagues established to initiate creative opportunities for Florentine artists, musicians and writers. We continued to benefit the venues in which our works were presented.



We were most grateful for the continued patronage of the Comune di Firenze, the Provincia di Firenze, the British Institute of Florence, Rete Toscana Classica, the Florentine and this year:  il Consolato Generale degli Stati Uniti d’America, Firenze, Italia and Terreno, Chianti Classico.

1° Festa della Cultura - San Giovanni Battista - Firenze 2012

The San Giovanni Battista Festa della Cultura is a new event dedicated to the people of Florence to celebrate the feast day of the city’s patron saint on 24th June. The festival is intended to grow each year and become an integral part of the Florentine calendar for its citizens and visitors alike. In fact, it is designed to bring Italian and Anglo-Florentine artists and audiences closer together.


This will be presented by i Buontalenti - a venture recently founded by five colleagues to initiate creative opportunities and work for Florentine artists, musicians and writers. The festival will be in partnership with Associazione Via Maggio, the British Institute of Florence and St. Mark’s English Church. We are most grateful for the patronage of the Comune di Firenze, the Provincia di Firenze, the Società San Giovanni Battista and the sponsorship of Knight Frank Italy.
