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.
