26th Intercity Festival in Florence: Theatre, Music, Art and much more until October, 31st

The Intercity Festival has come back to Florence for its 26th edition.

Until 31st October, you will have the chance to enjoy live performances, theatre shows, cinema and photo exhibitions, literary readings, workshops and conferences in the beautiful cradle of Renaissance.

The festival, born in 1988, holds its meaning in the name, because the trains that quickly and directly linked two big cities in Italy were called “intercity”. So, the festival’s purpose is just to connect in the same way the city of Florence and Sesto Fiorentino with another big city in the world and to give the Italian audience an idea of how the show business is arranged in such a different reality.

The program of the festival includes, besides the performance of many foreign acting companies, some productions of contemporary dramas by Italian and foreign directors.

In addition, literary readings, conferences with authors, cinema exhibitions and seminars are scheduled in the next days.

Here are the performances, activities and shows you can still attend:
