Amici della Musica di Firenze: 100 years

The documentary exhibition on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the foundation of Amici della Musica, at the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale in Florence from 29 October 2021 to 29 January 2022, recalls the first ten years (1920-1930) of concert activity for chamber and symphonic music of the prestigious Florentine Association, one of the most important concert societies in Europe.

On display documents relating to the early years of the concert activity, from 1920 to 1930: concert programmes, letters, paper documents and the "Libri d'Oro" with autographs of the greatest soloists and composers of the 20th century and manuscripts from the Fondo Gui in the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale in Florence.

A concert history remembered until the early 1930s, when events and pressure from the National Fascist Party led to the merging of the musical activities of the Politeama Fiorentino, the Società degli Amici della Musica and the Stabile Orchestrale Fiorentina into the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

Access to the exhibition by appointment only, with entrance from Via Magliabechi, 2.
