From Achille Lauro to Roberto Bolle, all the protagonists of the MusArt Festival 2022

From 16 to 26 July in Piazza Santissima Annunziata returns the festival that combines dance, music and visits to the most beautiful places in the city

Piazza Santissima Annunziata comes back to life again this year thanks to MusArt Festival with music, dance, exhibitions and visits to art places in the heart of the center of Florence. One of the best shows of summer 2022 in Florence.

The main guests of the 2022 edition are Roberto Bolle, LP, Achille Lauro, Vinicio Capossela, Goran Bregovic, Rock The Opera, Steve Hackett and Dado Moroni. A festival that combines big names in entertainment with the secular charm of Florence, from 16 to 26 July 2022 in one of the most iconic places in the city.



Roberto Bolle and his extraordinary dance Gala will inaugurate the Musart Festival on Saturday, July 16th. The étoile of the two worlds is a consolidated presence, and for years he has included Piazza Santissima Annunziata among the privileged destinations of his summer tours, together with the Terme di Caracalla and the Arena di Verona.

Monday, July 18 space to the American singer-songwriter LP and his new album Churches, a kaleidoscope in which pop, rock, soul and a pinch of folk intersect with poetic lyrics and particular.


On Tuesday, July 19, 2022, Riccardo Cocciante, one of the great protagonists of Italian song, the author of stupendous songs that have become the soundtrack of our lives, arrives on the stage in Piazza della Santissima Annunziata.

Wednesday, July 20 Achille Lauro as you've never seen him before, accompanied by his band and a 52-piece ensemble, the Electric Orchestra: a completely new show, from the arrangements to the costumes, an evolution of everything we've seen so far.

Thursday, July 21 marks the return of Vinicio Capossela: exactly one year after the Florentine concert inspired by Dante, the genius and theatricality of one of the most inspired songwriters of the Italian song.

With Form Sarajevo, on Friday July 22nd Goran Bregovic will transform into music the many souls of the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina: there will be three solo violins, played according to the classical western, klezmer and eastern traditions. There will also be the Wedding and Funeral Band, orchestra, gypsy wind ensemble and choir of Bulgarian voices.

From Pink Floyd to Zeppelin, great rock hits performed in symphonic key for Rock The Opera vol. 2, the concert that on Saturday July 23rd will see on the same stage the Orchestra della Toscana and the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Friedemann Riehle. 

To all Genesis fans: don't miss the appointment with Steve Hackett, on Monday 25th July, always on the stage of Piazza Santissima Annunziata. The legendary guitarist will arrive as part of Seconds out + more, a tour that features Seconds Out, one of the greatest hits of the Genesis album.

A few hours later, Tuesday, July 26 at 4.45 in the Courtyard of Men of the Istituto Degli Innocenti, will be the concert at dawn of pianist Dado Moroni to bring down the curtain of Musart Festival.

Before the shows you can visit free of charge gardens, places of worship and monumental buildings adjacent to Piazza della Santissima Annunziata.

And again, as part of Musart afternoon concerts, photo exhibitions, music films, an itinerary through places and spaces that have made the history of live music in Florence and other initiatives, mostly free admission.


The performances in the Piazza della Santissima Annunziata are in fact joined by concerts in the Cortile degli Uomini, a magnificent cloister of the Istituto degli Innocenti designed by Filippo Brunelleschi in the 15th century. Perfect context to exalt of singer-songwriters such as Tommaso Novi, who on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, opens the festival by unveiling songs from his new album Terzino fuorigioco, the former Gatti Mézzi's most complete and mature work, driven by tracks such as Area, Molto bello and Io sapevo nuotare.

Highly anticipated is Frida Bollani Magoni's concert on Wednesday, July 13, 2022. A pure, precious, unique talent, Frida is one of the most mature and surprising artists on the international scene. Her web performances go viral, and her debut album Primo Tour, released a few days ago, has definitely imposed her on the general public.

Almost a passing of the baton with Nada, who on Thursday, July 14, 2022, again in the Cortile degli Uomini of the Istituto degli Innocenti, brings a sort of "best of" her repertoire.

On Tuesday, July 26, at 4:45 p.m., it will be pianist Dado Moroni's dawn concert that will bring the curtain down on Musart Festival.

Performances start at 9:15 p.m., tickets available online at the official website
