This is Florence Inferno, the website that provides the names of events happening in Florence, as well as an events guide with information on music, art, cinema, markets, and many other exciting things going on in the city. In this post, we provide you with information on events happening over the next month, August 2018!
We would like to make special mention of the Feast of San Lorenzo (St. Lawrence) on August 10. St Lawrence is the co-patron saint of Florence. Every year on this feast day, there is an outdoor celebration in Piazza San Lorenzo.
August 10 is also known as the Night of San Lorenzo, or the Night of the Shooting Stars, when, according to tradition, dreams come true. You can make a wish every time you see a falling star!
