The Story to live together

Florence is famous all over the world for art and culture, but the tradition of its ancient taverns is less known. For this reason, an association of local sommeliers asked Martina to organize a special “stornellata” (singing moment) in the taverns involving a company of Florentine musicians.

Get ready because before going to the taverns we are with Martina and the whole company for rehearsals in Piazza Donati. Try to come even a little earlier to warm your voice and, if you have it, bring the book of the songs!
