History of Site and Related Water Issues

Arno River has a long story in Florence, it’s a special place for all: people of Florence and tourists. They go to Ponte Vecchio (the Old Bridge) to pass by and walk to the historical center of this “art town”. Lots of turists go to Ponte Vecchio and lock a padlock on the railing to declare their love.


We like to use a music made by an italian composer: Emanuele Chirco. The title of the song is: “The Creation”, taken from his last album: Divento Mondo.

The Performance

First part: a woman playing with water on Arno river. Second part is performed by aerial dancers. Third part on Arno River. Fourth part with the audience on Ponte vecchio if possible, otherwise (if over crowded) we’ll perform it on Arno River.

Directions to the Site of Performance

The real site where the performance will take place is Pescaia Santa Rosa, near Porta San Frediano. Two bridges down from Ponte Vecchio.
