CONVITTO DELLA CALZA
Prior to the ceremony and welcome drinks, participants will enjoy a guided visit of either the Santo Spirito Church or the Brancacci Chapel, with stops at local artisan workshops.
THE SANTO SPIRITO CHURCH
THE BRANCACCI CHAPEL
The Brancacci Chapel is a chapel in the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine, in the very heart of the Oltrarno quarter. It is sometimes called the “Sistine Chapel of the early Renaissance” for its painting cycle, among the most famous and influential of the period: the Scenes from the life of St. Peter, mostly painted in collaboration by Masaccio and Masolino between 1425 and 1427.
To get a feel for the Florentine rive gauche both tours include stops at local antiques stores and artisan studios flaunting centuries-old traditions and crafts.
Please kindly select one of the two tours on the registration form, as tour capacity is 100 persons each and registration will be on a first come, first served basis.
Participants will enjoy excellent Tuscan cuisine and a unique view of Florence at the same time. From the top of the Piazzale Michelangelo, in fact, Florence offers itself in all its beauty: from the ancient city walls to Fiesole, the sight is simply breathtaking!
Please note that transportation to and from the restaurant is not included. From the Symposium venue, it is less than 10 minutes by taxi.
