The Multipromo Cultural Association – created in 1997 – has a long-standing experience in the production of live events, shows and festivals.
From 1997 to 1999, we have served as Production Managers for one of the most prestigious opera events in the world: the Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago.
At the same time, from 1998 to 2003, we have managed and have been Art Directors of the oldest Italian festival: the “Estate Fiesolana”. We have played an active role in its development from a local “hospitality” festival and turning it into an opera festival entirely arranged by Multipromo. Specifically, we took care of the organization in general, the stage preparation, as well as creating an original and celebrated orchestra, a choir and a children choir.
Since 1998, we have been awarded public recognition and funding by the Ministry for Culture. Beginning in the summer of 2003, Multipromo has begun a productive cooperation with the well-known Taormina Arte, which has selected Multipromo’s productions to give new impulse to its festival, as well as to once again recognize opera’s original central role.
Since 2004, it has directed Opera Festival, the lyrical festival of Tuscany, with performances in many different cities within the Region: in Florence, at the Boboli Gardens at the Pitti Palace; in Pistoia, in the Duomo Square; in Fiesole, at the Roman Theater; in Pietrasanta, in the Duomo Square; in Barberino del Mugello, at Bilancino Lake and at the Medici Villa of Cafaggiolo.
It is actively involved in the production of lyrical operas, prose and concerts of different genres. The lyrical and symphony productions arranged by Multipromo have been Carmne by Bizet; Aida, Rigoletto and La Traviata by Verdi; La Boheme, Turandot and Tosca by Puccini, Symphony n.9 by Beethoven, Requiem Messa by Verdi, Carmina Burana by Orff, the Four Seasons by Vivaldi, ecc.
Boboli Gardens (Palazzo Pitti )- Firenze
The Boboli Gardens are located in the ancient and treasured heart of the city of Florence. It is a monumental garden covering five hectares of land. It is situated behind the Pitti Place and it constitutes its private gardens, the ideal prolongation of Ammannati’s inner courtyard. Boboli Gardens are possibly the world’s greatest example of Italian-style garden. On this occasion, Boboli shall transform itself into a theater, which shall occupy the area of the Column Field, right in front of Neptune’s Fountain, and will seat over 3000 viewers. (The entrance shall be in the Porta Romana Square).
San Galgano Abbey
The varied Opera festival performance program shall find its natural expression in this wondrous space. A theater seating about 800 viewers shall be arranged within the Abbey, preserving the historical and architectural worth of this magnificent place. The stage shall be placed within the absyd, while the public shall occupy the central nave.
LA TRAVIATA by G. Verdi will open the new season with a spectacular production.
