    Andrea Bocelli performing in Lajatico
    Andrea Bocelli, Lajatico 2019

    “Ali di libertà” is the title of the 14th edition of the Teatro del Silenzio.

    The best of the best is in the program: a multi-sensory experience that will reinvent opera by offering the greatest composers, the most beloved songs and the most popular “classics”, presented within an innovative format that will symbolically take the audience by the hand, within spectacular moving sets that are, currently, unparalleled. It is a memorable journey, to be taken – as always – alongside Andrea Bocelli, through the places where he was born and where many of his dearest loved ones still reside.

    Truffle Festival
    47th exhibition-market San Miniato white truffle

    The historic center of San Miniato dates back to the VIII century and still preserves authentic and beautiful details of all its history.

    For over a century San Miniato trufflers go out during the night with their dogs and walk through hidden paths, trying to find the precious tuber.

    Over the years the festival has become an international exhibition that today attracts thousands of Italian and foreign visitors.

    Together with the White Truffle, which is the star, you can taste many local products such as cheeses, meats, honey, extra-vergin olive oil, wine and jams walking the little streets of the village and you certainly will enjoy the real Tuscan country life.

    Luminara di San Ranieri – Pisa

    The “Luminara” is a special celebration that takes place every year in Pisa on the evening of June 16th: the eve of St. Ranieri, patron of the city.
    Each year about 100,000 candles are placed on wooden frames and they draw the architectural forms of churches, palaces and towers of the riversides.
    Then other floating candles are put into the river Arno, and with the public lighting off, they offer a really suggestive atmosphere.
    For many years, the evening ends with a series of fireworks around midnight.

    Not to miss!
