General Info

Congress Venue

Piazza Vittorio Gui 1,
50144 Florence (Italy)

The Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Theatre Foundation is a modern and functional space conceived
by the architect Paolo Desideri of the ABDR studio. The “new house” of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino
rises at the meeting point between the Florence historical center and the Parco delle Cascine, the green lung of the city. Moreover, the proximity to the Stazione Leopolda helps to create a cultural pole of European importance.
Above a sort of wide base, a sloping skirting, there are the large music rooms and the enigmatic volume of the 35 meter high stage tower.
The beautiful auditorium hosting the Plenary Sessions is dedicated to Maestro Zubin Mehta, which varies its capacity from 500 to 1000 spectators.



Florence is a small city well connected by 2 tramway lines: T1 Leonardo and T2 Vespucci.

The Congress Venue is located just in front of the “Porta al Prato – Leopolda” stop on the T1 line, at only one stop from the main railway station, where you can also get the connection with the T2 line to/from the Airport.
