Florence Inferno is a blog containing information on the events occuring in Florence, as well as an events guide on what’s happening in the city in terms of music, art, cinema, markets, and much more. In this post, we have provided you with information on events taking place over the next two weeks.
You won’t want to miss the last occasion to visit Picasso and Spanish Modernity at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, an important exhibition dedicated to one of the greatest painters of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso, and to the Spanish contemporary artists. The exhibition will be on until Sunday, January 25, 2015, and considering its popularity among Italians and foreigners alike, is likely to be open until 11 p.m on its last days.
We also make a special mention of the bonfires in Pontremoli, Massa Carrara, on January 31, 2015. The fiery events celebrate the ancestral tradition of keeping alive the ancient rivalry between the San Nicolò ward and the San Geminiano neighborhood. The bonfires recall the echoes of medieval conflicts between Guelphs and Ghibellines. Hard-working men prepare for the occasion by strategically piling great amounts of wood and dry bushes so that the flames can reach 30 metres in height. Starting at 12 a.m.
