The Bandierai degli Uffizi represented the Region of Honor 2023, Tuscany, at the 47th NIAF Gala in Washington DC in October 2022.
NAIF is the largest and most important Italian American Foundation in the United States.
So at a gala dinner with over 800 guests, our boys performed in front of an attentive and excited audience for having witnessed a historical, cultural and folkloristic tradition of our country.
Also present was the President of the Tuscany Region Eugenio Giani, who paid homage to the organizers with a reproduction of the statue of the Marzocco that the Bandierai degli Uffizi had brought to thank the president of the NIAF, Robert Allegrini.
The Bandierai degli Uffizi will be present with their flags, drums and trumpets, on the weekend of 24 July 2022, in Vichy in France in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
The occasion is to celebrate the first anniversary of the inscription in the UNESCO world heritage list of the main Spa towns.
The Bandierai will perform along a path that will wind through the main streets of the town and in the squares, from the morning to the evening of July 24, in the presence of the city authorities and the Mayor of Montecatini Terme.
A small representation of our group, in compliance with the AntiCovid regulations, performed at the weekend that saw the Formula E circus go on stage in Rome for the double Italian stage of the world championship of electric cars.
Another important and unique event that we had the pleasure of participating in even in such a difficult period.
The high fashion tailoring of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana chose Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, for the rebirth of fashion in 2020.

After a parade inside the hall of the 500 of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, the guests of the designers moved to the arengario of the historic building, to attend a deployment of the Procession of the Florentine Republic and an exhibition of flags and drums of the Bandierai of the Uffizi.
A fantastic setting for a unique and suggestive show.
On the occasion of the celebrations for the historic milestone of the 1000 Grand Prix achieved by the Scuderia Ferrari, the Bandierai degli Uffizi had the honor of performing in the event organized by the same car manufacturer, in Piazza della Signoria in Florence.
In the midst of the historic models of the prancing horse stable, our flags have entertained today’s and yesterday’s riders, as well as current managers, in the middle of a red-colored Piazza della Signoria and artistic projections on the facade of the historic building.
Thanks to Scuderia Ferrari for the wonderful pictures.
