Florence changes its tune. Florentine garden brings generations together
Hidden from view, many tourists never realise that the Corsini Garden, featured in today's image, lies just beyond the walls of the Palazzo Corsini al Prato. You’ll find the garden and palace in Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance and capital of Tuscany. Designed by architect Bernardo Buontalenti in the early 1590s, the Palazzo Corsini al Prato and Corsini Garden will host the third annual New Generation Festival this week. The festival, which features a new generation of musical talent from around the world performing a different musical genre each night, is designed to break down barriers between generations. For four nights, young and old will enjoy opera, jazz, and classical music in an Italian garden that has enchanted visitors for more than a dozen generations.
