MEMBERS ONLY EVENTS
In collaboration with Association "Peralandra Teatro", a 25 years company based in Florence, we organize Theatre events in the Theatre of San Gimignano, historical walkings with theatral pieces and contemporary performances. Both in Italian or in English, the pieces are conducted by professional actors and with original texts.
Street Artists of San Gimignano
La Via dell'Arte takes care about buskers coming to San Gimignano or living here as resident painters or musicians; in fact, many members of the association are licensed street artists that do this as their main work. We select and promote them, we print an info/map and we help them to perform at our events.
Room Concerts are a beautiful, meditative experience located in a nice room next to Piazza Cisterna, the main square of San Gimignano. You can relax on comfortable pillows and sofas, inspired by music from ancient instruments and live electronics. Sometimes you will find also Swing, Jazz or Gypsy/Klezmer combos for a more lively experience.
