A lot of memory in the Ex Manifattura Tabacchi in Via Cascine 33-35, Florence. A place which reminds to the deafening noise of the working machines, now echoing the nostalgic sounds of abandoned places. For many years the ancient industrial building came back to life thanks to many cultural events where art, fashion and music were mixed together to give a new look, culturally deafening, at the beautiful space of the Ex Manifattura Tabacchi.
For the event Firenze4Ever (F4E) dated 12 January 2015 and entitled “Oriental Obsession“, organized byLUISAVIAROMA, the 44 stoned columns supporting the structure, 5 m high and 12 square meters each, have been almost completely covered with 30,000 imitation gold leaves, 2.5 coloured, and donated by Giusto Manetti Battiloro.
At the Ex Manifattura Tabacchi, next Saturday, September the 26th, 2015 is scheduled the Tempo Reale Festival, a thematic review on sound and music research, with the SOUND DAY / THROUGH FIVE FINGERS.
An opportunity to get lost in the mysticism of the sounds and gold.
