Half a century for Florence

The wait is over and the first event of the year has finally begun.

The cutting of the ribbon carried out by Mayor Dario Nardella in the presence of the President of the Tuscany Region Eugenio Giani, the President of the City Council Luca Milani, the President of Calcio Storico Michele Pierguidi and the Director of the Parade of the Florentine Republic Filippo Giovannelli, was preceded by a performance of the Bandierai.

In fact, the “Bandierai degli Uffizi” exhibition was inaugurated on Saturday 18 February, created by the 3 curators appointed by the group: Massimo Marmugi, Claudio Manes Mariani and Gian-Luca Pasquini, who worked under the watchful wing of Captain Antonio Marrone to create a multi-dimensional project.

The first dimension is that of the meticulous reconstruction of the history of the group through a photographic repertoire chosen by the curators, accompanied year by year by historical events of the time.

The second dimension is the exhibition one with the possibility of admiring and even touching some instruments. There is the first drum from 1960 and the first flag from 1973. There are the clothes and a selection of prizes and awards obtained by the group in 50 years.

The third dimension is the multimedia one. Indeed, on the niches of the Sala d’Arme of Palazzo Vecchio are reproduced some contemporary and period videos, recent and black and white photos.
