Cortona Antiquaria

Cortona AntiquariaE’ dall’ormai lontano 1963 che Cortona, tra la fine del mese di agosto e l’inizio di settembre, vive immersa nell’antiquariato proponendosi sempre come punto di riferimento per gli amanti del collezionismo d’arte. Cortona è senza dubbio una città vivace per il mercato antiquario dove nel solo centro storico sono 10 i negozi specializzati in antiquariato, dove vi sono altrettante gallerie d’arte contemporanea, restauratori e botteghe artigiane. Cortonantiquaria è un appuntamento atteso dagli appassionati dell’antico e dell’antiquariato, ma è anche un richiamo quasi di moda sempre più in voga nel calendario di fine estate e che già guarda all’autunno.

Un appuntamento che si caratterizza per la capacità unica di coniugare felicemente il fascino specialistico delle opere di antiquariato ad eventi mondani. Un appuntamento irrinunciabile insomma per tutti gli amanti del bello e i visitatori esigenti.

Cortona Mix Festival

Among the summer events in Cortona you cannot miss Cortona Mix Festival, a big cultural event of music, cinema, theater, arts and literature, a cocktail of performances and meetings, wine tasting and local products tasting and social events. The beautiful Etruscan town of Cortona hosts this big event on the national and international scale where contemporary culture, technology and entertainment will be mixed together with ancient origins and traditions of the territory in a fascinating mix of genres and shows that will be taking place in the lovely frame of Piazza Signorelli, of Teatro Signorelli and of the MAEC Museum (Museum of the Etruscan Academy and the City of Cortona).
 
The cultural festival of Cortona, conceived in 2012 by the Feltrinelli Group and the Comune di Cortona, with the contribution of Regione Toscana, of Fondazione Orchestra Regionale della Toscana, of Fondazione Toscana Spettacolo and of Accademia degli Arditi, presents an original formula among the cultural events in Tuscany and in the whole Italy where arts are mixed up and melted according to ideas and projects based on contamination, comparison and provocation. Cortona Mix Festival represents the future of Cortona, carrying a wave of innovation and modernity in a context of high historical and artistic importance that is deeply rooted in the Etruscan, Roman and Medieval times.
 
The Mix Show evening shows (concerts, live performances, parties) will combine with interesting meetings with publishers and film directors within Incontri di Cortona, with films and videos shown within Visions and laeffe, with all Mix Cocktails cultural events, ranging from cinema to football, from philosophy to music and contemporary arts, as well as amazing wine tours to discover the excellent producers of Cortona DOC wines. The Mix Prize will be awarded to the best book published in Italy, based on the combined vote of Feltrinelli booksellers and the readers of the festival official bookshop run by Librerie Feltrinelli.

 Cortona Theater Season 

Cortona Theater SeasonCortona è un luogo adatto per soggiornare anche d'inverno, quando la città ritorna ad essere, dopo l'abbondante flusso estivo di turisti, il “luogo del silenzio”, come descritto dai viaggiatori di mezzo secolo fa.

Gli eventi invernali ruotano intorno alla stagione teatrale del Teatro Signorelli. Nel centro storico di Cortona, il Teatro organizza, da novembre a marzo da oltre 30 anni un cartellone di spettacoli che, per attori e pièces è pari a quella dei più importanti teatri nazionali.

La nostra reception è a vostra disposizione per l'acquisto di biglietti e prenotazioni di cene dopo-teatro e altri servizi collegati.
