Festival: New Generation Festival

Biography

When? 26th - 29th August 2020

Where? Concealed behind the façade of the Palazzo Corsini al Prato is one of Florence’s finest gardens, now home to The New Generation Festival.

Dress Code The dress code at The New Generation Festival is formal evening dress. There is a black tie/long dress guide in place, but guests can wear whatever they feel most fabulous in.

How To Get There? The Palazzo Gardens are only 10 minutes' walk from Florence's Santa Maria Novella train station, which you can travel to from Pisa, Bologna or Milan and is itself a 20 minute shuttle bus journey from Florence's own small airport. The grand entrance is located at 115 Via Della Scala, where guests will be greeted by a picture-perfect view into the gardens. The gates open at 6pm each evening, giving guests the opportunity to select their perfect spot to enjoy during the interval.

Food & Drink The New Generation Festival offers various dining options on every night of the festival. Numerous food stands and bars, catering to all dietary requirements, are situated around the Palazzo Corsini Gardens. Guests may either purchase a pre-paid food pass online to save time and money or pay as they go by card or with cash on site. Guests also have the opportunity to purchase a ticket for the Corsini Clubhouse - a relaxed, freely-seated buffet with the Corsini family on offer throughout the evening in the central Limonaia. Food and drink are always available, both before and after the shows as well as during the long intervals.
