Nottarno 2007 and San Giovanni

Sunday June, the 23rd, in Florence there will be NOTTARNO "notte bianca in Oltrarno".
Get to know and experience Oltrarno for a night of music, events, performances and markets. From 9pm to 3am.
A chance to stroll along the streets in the neighbourhood, along the left bank of the river Arno.
History and art act as the protagonists along with anyone who want to join in this great "party" when the lights of the craft workshops and stores will illuminate the Oltrarno area all night.

The day after, on 24 June, is "San Giovanni". Florence celebrates the feast of its patron, San Giovanni, with a series of exhibitions that involve the entire city.
On the morning of 24 June, a Historic Parade wends its way from Piazza della Signoria to the Baptistery of the Cathedral with an offering of candles for the patron. A solemn mass follows with the showing of the Saint's relics.
At the conclusion, on the evening of the 24th, there is a traditional fireworks display in Piazzale Michelangelo, called Fuochi di San giovanni, which draws a huge crowd, especially concentrated in Lungarni (Arno River promenades).
