Next year Pistoia will play the fundamental role of being the Capital of Italian Culture. This means that many projects have been planned to enhance its cultural heritage and territorial development, as well as to improve services for international tourists with the support of the Region.
More than 200 events in different locations will bring the entire town to life with concerts, historical itineraries, museum opening, meetings and shows for both adults and children. The New Year’s Eve concert will be the first step in the programme, which will continue with the arrival of the Befana witch in Piazza Duomo on January 6th, followed by many other ventures you can check here.
This programme aims to offer a range of cultural and innovative experiences like the Pistoia Theatre Festival and the “Cities of Michelucci” exhibition. There will be a large number of tributes to famous Pistoia citizens, especially artists like Marino Marini and Ippolito Desideri. In addition, the 2017 Pistoia Blues Festival will welcome John Mayall and several Maggio Fiorentino Festival events will move to Pistoia.
