The week of the Beauty
The week from may 17 to may 23, 2015 is the Week of the Beauty in Florence! The purpose is to make Florence even more and more beautiful with a series of events for urban renewal and the care of gardens and public areas. This will be possible thanks to the Angels of the Beauty, a fundation born in 2010 that, with other volunteers, will personally get involved in the project and get their hands dirty to clean up our city. So their hope is to involve as much people as possible, both citizens and turists, and to rise awarness of the importance of the respect of public areas and the ‘beauty’, as a synonym of decorum and active participation of the city.
Every day there’s something new. We recommend you a peculiar date for everyone, grown-ups and children. On wednesday the 20th from 05.00 pm do not miss ‘Garden in Love‘, the opportunity to transform Piazza della Repubblica in a city garden! In the afternoon you can also take part in the contest #giùlemani: take a picture of you getting your hands dirty e post it on Instagram with the hashtag #giùlemani and you may win a gardening class at Serre Torrigiani.
The complete calender is available here (italian only).
