Vanessa BEECROFT will be the exceptional guest and heart of FIRENZE SUONA CONTEMPORANEA 2017. She has been invited to interpret the city of Florence through two site-specific installations, around which all the other events will be held.

On Monday, October 2nd at 6pm, the Sala del Niobe, Uffizi becomes the theater where the mute drama of a Greek tragedy will literally be breathed, subtle and dramatic, expressed by the composite bodies and choreographed by the artist according to the tradition of the tableaux vivants. Beecroft returns here to collaborate with designer Cristina Bomba and her Masion of Rome to form the garments from her imagination. The entrance will be free until no places remain, thanks to a contribution from Florence Musei.
