A week of special events and great artworks for the Cultural and Environmental Heritage Week in Florence from November 3rd to 11th, that will transform the city into the international capital of Cultural Heritage. I’m going to be a local blogger and you can follow me through the best events. But let’s have a look at the main attractions!
Main attractions for Florens2012
In Piazza Santa Croce the Italian artist Mimmo Paladino will create a giant Crox made out of huge blocks of white marble, right in front of Santa Croce Church.
In Piazza San Giovanni, in front of the Duomo, there will be placed 70 centuries-old olive trees to create a urban olive grove, evoking also the garden of Gethsemane. Inside Saint John Baptistery will be displayed for the first time all together the three Crucifix by Brunelleschi, Donatello and Michelangelo.
There will be also conferences and meetings. I recommend you visit the official program for Florens2012.
