There are few formal gardens in Italy as pretty as those at the Palazzo Corsini al Prato in Florence. The walled space, in the heart of the Tuscan capital, was designed at the end of the 16th century, and with its fountains, lemon orchards and ornamental cherry trees it’s a pristine and secluded oasis in the Renaissance city. It’s also the location for the first-ever New Generation Festival, a showcase of fresh talent in the worlds of opera and classical music taking place from August 31 to September 3.
All performances begin 19:30.
Bells will be rung ten and five minutes before the start of performances.
