Notte Blu

Europe Direct Firenze and Fondazione Sistema Toscana – Complesso delle Murate, Florence

Festival d’Europa Photo Gallery







On the occasion of The State of the Union 2019 and in the context of the Festival d’Europa, Notte Blu reaches this year its 10th edition and will return to the Murate on Thursday, the 9th of May. In lights of the important upcoming European Parliament elections, this year, Notte Blu will promote a day full of events, labs and musical performances with the new addition of a flashmob, organized by Fondazione Sistema Toscana as part of the project YOU in EU. These will take place, like every year, in partnership with stakeholders of the cultural district of the Murate and will be dedicated to the founding values of the EU, fostered by the long integration process that has progressively included every Member State.
