Florence Dance Festival at the Bargello from June 25th up July 22nd 2012

The Bargello, in the right center of Florence, famous for Renaissance sculpture as Uffizi is for painting,  boasts glorious origins having hosted in the 13th century  the major town institutions  such as the Capitano del Popolo , the Podestà or in the 16th century the  Capitano di Giustizia.

Its gorgeous  courtyard has become since  2009  the acclaimed backdrop of Florence Dance Festival, thus replacing sites like the Anfiteatro delle Cascine, the Teatro di Fiesole or Piazzale Michelangelo.

No better choice could have been done for this Florentine festival, which makes us think of  Avignone  first-rated performances. The event,  titled “Rediscovering a new world“ focuses on the issue of the journey, a homage to the fifth hundred anniversary of Amerigo Vespucci’s death by the founders and directors, the international dancer Marga Nativo and  the New York choreographer Keith Ferrone.  Among the guest companies Saint Peterborough Ballet,  Urban Collective from New York, the Spanish InterfereCiayTamashy or the Florentine Maktubnoir .

The startup  was on June 25th with “Celebration” by the Naples San Carlo Ballet   and “Bat” by Roland Petit’s on Strauss’ notes. The French singers such as Charles Aznavour, Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsborough, Edith Piaf  are going to lead the performances of the Milan Ballet.  Gershwin’s “An American in Paris” could not be missing ,  his notes are going to inspire the Compagnia Raffaele Paganini.

But,  definitely, the core of the event is going to be, on July the 3rd “Excalibar Trilogy” jointly by Ferrone and Nativo themselves.

A special note to ” Not –Two is Peace” by Ferrone which becomes both an unerring gaze at reality and image of inner landscapes up to the conclusion, a  hymn to harmonious coexistence. All that through a professionally multimedia use of dance, music, art and lights  in an ongoing awareness of  Florence as permanent source of inspiration.

On top of everything passion  and a close engagement to reality in a framework resounding of Donatello, Cellini and Michelangelo.
